Health in Africa
Professor speaks on gender issues at global conference
Changing cultural norms
and empowering women
Sociology professor Linda Semu was among the invited presenters when international scholars and practitioners gathered recently to discuss health in Africa and the U.N. Millennium Development Goals (MDG).
Sometimes the path to gender equality seems too steep and difficult a climb, but Semu is passionate about working to change cultural norms and empowering women everywhere.
“My argument is that we have to look beyond the individual goals and take a holistic view in terms of gender and culture,” says the international comparative sociologist who came from Malawi to the U.S. for her master’s and Ph.D.
