Cuninggim Lecture on Women in Culture and Society
Each year, the Cuninggim Lecture on Women in Culture and Society offers an occasion to raise awareness about the ways in which gender shapes and is shaped by our lived experiences. Each Cuninggim Lecturer empowers Vanderbilt community members to expand their activist reach and become more involved in positive social change outside of the University.
