In the spirit of consciousness raising groups *, please join the Women's Studies Program for our brown bag lunch series.
We invite members of the campus community to bring their lunch and join us. We want to use this time as an opportunity for a “meeting of minds”.
As an informal gathering, we intend to address a wide range of issues including current topics being discussed inside the classroom and out. The lunches provide opportunities to discuss hot topics, challenges, solutions, and to share ideas and inspirations. Join us for an informal gathering with colleagues and community members who are friends of the Women's Studies Program.
The event is FREE. Invite a friend!
Black Lives Matter is an ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise.
"#BlackLivesMatter was created in response to the anti-Black racism that permeates our society and also, unfortunately, our movements." - Alcia Garza, Special Projects Director,National Domestic Workers Alliance
Accounts of the lives of individual women are critically important because they reveal exceptionally strong role models who share a more expansive vision of what a woman can do. The stories of women’s lives, and the choices they made, encourage girls and young women to think larger and bolder, and give boys and men a fuller understanding of the female experience. Knowing women’s achievements challenges stereotypes and upends social assumptions about who women are and what women can accomplish today.
|* Consciousness Raising (also called awareness raising) is a form of political activism, popularized by United States feminists in the late 1960s. It often takes the form of a group of people attempting to focus the attention of a wider group of people on some cause or condition. Common issues include diseases (e.g. breast cancer, AIDS), conflicts (e.g. the Darfur genocide, global warming), movements (e.g. Greenpeace, PETA, Earth Hour), and political parties or politicians. Since informing the populace of a public concern is often regarded as the first step to changing how the institutions handle it, raising awareness is often the first activity in which any advocacy group engages.
