Where were the men?

If you consider Hamilton’s reputation of a bursting number of government and world politics majors and a vibrant, public commitment to civil rights issues, you would think that a talk by one of the last decade’s greatest civil rights leaders would draw a packed crowd, and you would be right–except the chapel looked more like Kirkland College than Hamilton College. At this past Monday’s lecture by Lilly Ledbetter the audience included around 100 people, and less than ten of them were male. This disparity is at the very least statistically troubling and at the most a dire indication of gendered disinterest about significant women’s issues on campus. The woman who helped create the most significant pieces of civil right’s legislation in the last fifteen years came to Hamilton, and all the men of the political sciences apparently had something better to do.
