Empower - The Campaign for Northeastern University


Valerie Gordon Human Rights Lecture

Penny Andrews, Dean and President, Albany Law School

"Universal Feminisms and Localized Masculinities: How Should Truth and Reconciliation Commissions Deal with Violence Against Women?" Sexual violence has always played a part of war and social conflict, but has too often been overlooked as those in conflict attempt reconciliation. In this year's Valerie Gordon Lecture, Dean Penelope (Penny) Andrews of Albany Law School considers how transitional justice should address such violence.

The annual Valerie Gordon Human Rights Lecture, established in 1993, honors outstanding lawyers, judges, scholars and advocates who work to advance human rights and social justice. The lecture is named in honor of the late Valerie Gordon '93, a lawyer and advocate for human rights in the US and internationally. Her commitment to human rights and social justice shown is shared and celebrated by the Northeastern law school community.
