Renowned Sociologist Michael Kimmel To Speak In The HUB Today

Kimmel is a world renowned sociologist with several books and a TED talk surrounding his expertise on gender studies to his name. His views on feminism and gender equality have made him quite popular amongst those who champion the cause.
