From Clare de Mowbray on January 11th, 2021
'The Eclipse of Black Women in Anti-Discrimination Law'
by Professor Iyiola Solanke, Chair of European Union Law and Social Justice within the University of Leeds Law School.
Chaired by Dr Chisomo Kalinga, Wellcome Trust Medical Humanities Fellow
To what extent do Black women enjoy legal protection from discrimination in the labour market? How can this be improved? This talk will examine these questions through an exploration of anti-discrimination law and its impact in the UK, North America and the EU. Drawing upon ideas in their recent book, Discrimination as Stigma (Hart 2017), Professor Solanke will argue for a re-design of anti-racial discrimination law that departs from the experiences and perspectives of Black women.
