Feminism: From Origins to Evolution Teach-Out
What does feminism mean to you?
Does it have the same meaning that it might have ten years ago? For your parents? Your children?
In celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8th, this Teach-Out presents perspectives on feminism from across generations and professions alongside opportunities for reflection and action. We will discuss what feminism means today and how we can work towards gender equality in our own communities.
The purpose of this Teach-Out is to reflect on the changing definitions and practices related to feminism as activists, community workers, and scholars strive for a more inclusive movement towards gender equality. We will consider the meaning of intersectionality in feminism -seeing how gender, race, class, ability, and other factors can compound one another- and diversifying the work of feminism to be more inclusive. We will also look at how different contributors use their work, from organizing to art and more, to enact feminism in their communities.
