This episode of the en(gender)ed podcast was taped live at the NYU College of Global Public Health in association with the Community Preparedness and Response Group at NYU and is the first in our series of international feminism.

Seth Shelden is an attorney, and law professor, an activist, and a performer. He also currently is the United Nations Liaison for the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN). ICAN won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017, and Seth was in Oslo to be part of the momentous honor. ICAN won the Nobel Peace Prize for its work in drawing attention to the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons and for advancing a new treaty prohibiting such weapons. Seth is here with us today to speak about his journey as a scholar and activist, his work as ICAN's United Nations Liaison, and what we can do to help build an awareness and join the movement to promote nuclear disarmament in the United States. We will also ask about his observations on gender justice in the humanitarian sector.
