Women's Studies Faculty Research Award
Ann Bell, Award Recipient

​Dr. Ann V. Bell

The Department of Women & Gender Studies is pleased to present the lecture by Dr. Ann V. Bell, Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Delaware, the 2018 recipient of the Mae and Robert Carter Endowment Women’s Studies Faculty Research Award, for her research "A Neglected Disparity: Race, Class, Gender, and the Lived Experience of Abortion." On October 22, 2019, from 4:00pm-6:00pm in the Trabant University Center Room 209/11,  Dr. Bell, will present her research exploring the disconnect between statistics and women's lived experiences of abortion, asking how does the social construction of abortion and its embedded stereotypes influence how women understand and experience abortion? Furthermore, importantly, how does one's life circumstances, including race, class, and gender, shape such an experience? A reception will follow the lecture, which is free and open to students, faculty, the UD community, and the public.
