2019 Fisher Lecture - Missing Women

It is my pleasure to invite you to the 2019 Fisher Lecture presented by Professor Siwan Anderson from the University of British Columbia's Vancouver School of Economics.

The lecture will explore why there is an extreme demographic deficit of women in many developing countries. In developed countries women tend to live longer than men. Estimates, however, suggest that in the developing world there are up to 200 million women demographically missing because of gender discrimination.
