Feminist Conversation Series
Has it been a while since you got together with 15 to 30 people to discuss what it's like to be a women of color and a feminist or if there's a role for men in the feminist movement? If so, join WIN's Feminist Conversation Series for a thought provoking evening where we'll discuss some of the thornier topics in the feminist movement.
WIN's Feminist Conversation Series engages WIN members in critical discussions about gender, equality, and the movement for women's rights. This series brings area experts together with WIN members in a setting where every person has a voice and every opinion matters.
Lively discussions are the goal of the Feminist Conversation Series, which challenges WIN members to explore and define their identity as pro-choice, Democratic women. Discussion topics have included the relationship between race and gender, gender identities, sexuality, and the role of men in the feminist movement.
