Monday, Oct. 3, 6:30 p.m., Moeller High School, 9001 Montgomery Road

The Notre Dame Club of Greater Cincinnati, Archbishop Moeller High School and the Moeller Moms’ Club will take on “Gender Injustice” in a talk by Professor James McKenna from the University of Notre Dame.

The event is free and open to the public. It will begin with a reception and light refreshments.

“Gender Injustice: Context, Culture and Communication” will explore how, when and why women have been denied social, economic and political equality – and how improving communications between men and women can help close the gap.   

As one of Notre Dame’s most popular professors, McKenna has won many teaching awards since joining the faculty in 1997. An expert on infant sleep and director of ND’s Mother-Baby Behavioral Sleep Laboratory, he is a widely quoted authority on the research supporting co-sleeping. He has published more than 130 articles in medical, anthropology and psychology journals, as well as the book, “Sleeping With Baby: A Parent’s Guide to Co-Sleeping.”

This presentation is the ND Club of Cincinnati’s 2016 installment of the Notre Dame Alumni Association’s Hesburgh Lecture Series. The Cincinnati club serves more than 1,600 graduates, students, families, fans and friends of the university.
