MARCH 23: the Annual WGSS Women’s History Symposium: Opening Plenary with Lizz Winstead

Feminists on the Politics of Crisis: the Annual WGSS Women’s History Symposium
Thursday, March 23, 5:30 PM
Cabral Center
Online registration TBA

The annual Women’s History Month Symposium is a lively day of conversation among academics, activists, and writers. This year’s theme brings feminist thinkers together to address the greatest crises facing us today—the climate emergency, reproductive justice in the wake of SCOTUS overturning Roe, and censorship in education (banned books, critical race theory, “don’t say gay” bills)—and to suggest feminist frameworks for solutions and strategies forward. 

Join us for an opening comedy set/plenary, “Self-Care IS Activism”, with legendary comedian Lizz Winstead. Lizz is the co-creator of The Daily Show and the founder of Abortion Access Front, an activist organization fighting for reproductive justice and abortion access for all.
