March is Women’s History Month & International Women’s Month, and this year we’re celebrating with a collection of digital and print resources from the Gutman and Scott libraries on intersectional feminism. Check out the resources and join us on March 8, International Women’s Day, for INTERSECTIONAL FEMINISMS: Many Identities, One Movement. You can attend in-person or virtually.
At the event, Dr. Jane Caputi of the Center for Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Florida Atlantic University will explore the evolution of feminist theory and discuss the current battle over Black, Queer, and Feminist studies in America. A reception will follow the discussion. Learn more and sign up.
And while you’re at it, if you’re on the East Falls campus, check out Gutman Library’s Intersectional Feminism Collection on the 1st floor (Main Floor) of the library to take out a resource or browse online. The titles in this collection cover how racism, ableism, xenophobia, and homophobia combine with sexism to show how societal discrimination affects every woman differently. If you’re in Center City, visit Scott Library’s 1st-floor Leisure Collection to check out Center City’s resources.
