At this event co-sponsored by the King Center on Global Development and Center for South Asia, Soledad Artiz Prillaman spoke about her new book, The Patriarchal Political Order, in which she analyzes data from more than 9,000 women and men in India to reveal how coercive power structures diminish political participation for women. She also explores how women working in solidarity combat their political exclusion.

Professor Prillaman shared her King Center-funded research and an excerpt from the book, and answered questions from the audience, after which we celebrated her achievement with an informal reception.
