May 12 – Supporting Mothers

Join us for a Mother’s Day discussion on how we can create better policies to support mothers and the implications of motherhood as it intersects with economic inequality. Featured speakers include: 


Dr. Doreen Mattingly, Professor and Chair of Women’s Studies, SDSU. Since coming to SDSU in 1995, Dr. Mattingly has taught a total of sixteen different courses, including her popular classes on women and politics, women’s movements and activism, and globalization and development.  In 2016 she was the recipient of the College of Arts and Letters Excellence in Teaching Award. Her most recent book, A Feminist in the White House: Midge Costanza, the Carter Years, and America’s Culture Wars (New York: Oxford University Press, 2016), chronicles the political career of a feminist who served as assistant to the president for public liaison under President Jimmy Carter. Dr. Mattingly’s current research investigates the California feminist movement of the 1970s, especially in its engagement with political institutions. 

Dr. Rebecca Fielding-Miller, Assistant Professor at the University of California, San Diego in the Division of Infectious Disease and Global Public Health and the Center on Gender Equity and Health. Her research examines structural drivers of HIV and gender based violence in the United States and sub-Saharan Africa with a focus on the intersection of race, gender, and economic inequality. She holds an MSPH in International Health, Social and Behavioral Interventions from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and a PhD in Behavioral Sciences and Health Education from Emory University. She served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in South Africa from 2006-2008 and as a Fulbright Scholar in Swaziland in 2013-2014.
