The Oxford Martin School has launched a new programme on Women’s Equality and Inequality, focused on social mobility and education.

Led by Professor Senia Paseta and Professor Selina Todd, the ultimate aim of the programme is to identify drivers of individual upward mobility, and of generational uplift, that can help to eradicate educational and economic inequality for women around the world.

"We are delighted to launch the Oxford Martin Programme on Women’s Equality and Inequality,” said Professor Paseta. “We agree with Hilary Rodham Clinton that 'women’s rights is the unfinished business of the 21st century'. Our research on women’s social mobility aims to contribute to the eradication of educational and economic inequality for women around the world."

Professor Sir Charles Godfray, Director of the Oxford Martin School, said, “Achieving gender equality continues to be a pressing issue across the world and across societies. We are pleased to welcome Professors Paseta and Todd and this important research area to our community.”
