MONDAY MARCH 20

Radical Acceptance: Making Peace with Defining Womanhood

Time:  6:00 PM
Location:  Room 4140 Talley Student Union
Simone de Beauvoir states: “one is not born, but rather becomes a woman.” Janet Mock elaborates and reflects: “becoming is the action that births our womanhood, rather than the passive act of being born (an act none of us has a choice in). I have the freedom, in spite of and because of my birth, body, race, gender expectations, and economic resources, to define myself for myself and for others.” How do you define yourself? Join us for a discussion exploring womanhood—what it means to us, what it means to you, and how we can accept each and everyone’s complex definitions of womanhood.

Dorothy Roberts

Time:  7:00 PM
Location:  Room 2203 SAS Hall
Published in 1997, Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and the Meaning of Liberty documents a long history of regulation of Black women’s bodies in the United States, beginning with the legal status of enslaved women as property, and explains its crucial
importance to both reproductive and racial politics in America. Twenty years later, these devaluing ideologies, laws, and policies have expanded in new guises that help to perpetuate race and gender injustice in the health care, law enforcement, welfare, and foster care systems. At the same time, the rise of an exciting reproductive justice movement has provided a new framework for envisioning a more humane and equitable society.
