Feminist Fridays: Conversations Led by Student Scholars
News from the Provost
Join the Women’s Center for Feminist Fridays: student-scholar-led feminist conversations.
Feminist Fridays provide a space for transformative learning, relationship building and counter-storytelling, an opportunity to learn more about ourselves through the connection of feminist and critical theories with current events and popular topics.
Feminist Friday scholars create a safe space for students and community members to take a personal look at the ways the social world has shaped their experiences, beliefs and opinions as well as how they engage within systems of power, privilege and oppression.
Last semester, Feminist Fridays included conversations on the gender pay gap in sports, body positivity and fatphobia, Latin-American feminism, the medicalization of Black women’s bodies, the politicization of Black women’s bodies in the church, and being trans in higher education.
Participants enjoy the intimate opportunity to talk and engage on topics, and we invite you to join us. Our first Feminist Friday, “Whoreible Scholars: Black Women and Sex Positivity” will be on January 25, 2019.
To learn more about Feminist Fridays, visit the Women’s Center in Talley Student Union, Suite 5210 every Friday from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.
