Celebrate International Women’s Day on Wednesday, March 8, by joining us for Intersectional Feminisms: Many Identities, One Movement. The discussion and reception will take place in the Media Classroom at the Paul J. Gutman Library on the East Falls campus from 5-7pm. You can attend the presentation virtually via Zoom.
Hear from Dr. Jane Caputi of the Center for Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Florida Atlantic University. Dr. Caputi will discuss the evolution of intersectional feminism – the idea that women’s overlapping identity markers like race and age impact how they experience discrimination.
Dr. Caputi will share examples of intersectional activism and also discuss the current attack on Black, Queer, and Feminist studies in America, specifically the recent Florida legislation’s rejection of the A.P. African American Studies curriculum. Learn more and register now.
After the presentation, join us for a reception to get to know others at Jefferson interested in the topic, and check out Gutman Library’s collection of books, magazines, videos, and eBooks on topic of intersectionality.
Register today and we’ll see you on March 8th! Learn more about Dr. Caputi.
