Forums are designed to continue discussions and to create new discussions around feminism past, present and future. It is within these forums we intend to promote the equal and fair treatment for all individuals regardless of gender, race, class, sexuality, age, ability by engaging both the University and Lubbock communities in an open discussion.
A forum of this type strives to create an environment where the cultural and social construction of gender can be freely examined through the history, experiences and contributions of women to society and study the influences of gender on the lives of women and men.
