Professor McGinley to Give University Forum Lecture on March 19

The Boyd School of Law is pleased to announce that Professor Ann McGinley is giving a University Forum Lecture on Tuesday, March 19, 2013, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. at UNLV's Marjorie Barrick Museum/Harry Reid Center.

Professor McGinley's lecture, which is presented by the College of Liberal Arts and sponsored by the UNLV Women's Council, is titled "The End of Men: Myth or Reality?" Drawing on law, popular culture, and concepts of masculinity, Professor McGinley will challenge Hanna Rosin's assertion in "The End of Men" that women will soon overtake men in blue-collar and white-collar workplaces. Professor McGinley will explore changing relationships between the sexes and how the law has affected gender dynamics at work. She will also examine how the increasing sexualization of Las Vegas casino jobs affects men’s and women’s job prospects and relationships.

The event is free and open to the public. Additional information is available here.
