Talk Will Focus On Women In Mexican Politics

The Center for U.S.-Mexico Studies at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) continues its popular lecture series this month with a talk about the role of women in contemporary Mexican politics.

The lecture, scheduled for Tuesday, March 18, at 2 p.m. in Room 4.614 of the Jonsson Building, will be presented by Dr. Victoria Rodriguez, vice provost at The University of Texas at Austin, where she also serves as a professor in the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs.

Rodriguez, who in 2002 was named as one of the 100 most influential Hispanics in the United States by Hispanic Business magazine, received the Ohtli Medal, the highest honor granted by the Mexican government outside Mexico. Her career has focused on governance, democratization and political change in Mexico. In addition to numerous articles, she has written two books about women in Mexican politics: "Women's Participation in Mexican Political Life" (1998) and "Women in Contemporary Mexican Politics" (2002).

Rodriguez's lecture is being co-sponsored by the center and UTD's School of Social Sciences.

UTD's Center for U.S.-Mexico Studies was created in 1995 to foster greater understanding between the United States and Mexico about issues of interest to both countries. The center strives to enhance the academic relationship between UTD and Mexico via international education, research and public service programs.

The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will conclude with a question-and-answer session. For more information about Rodriguez's talk or the lecture series, please contact Gabriela Carrera at (972) 883-6401.
