Women of Color Series: “Stereotypes, Identities, Roles and Allies”

The Women of Color Series continues with a talk titled “Stereotypes, Identities, Roles and Allies” Wednesday, Feb. 8, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Tinkham Veale University Center, Suite 248.

By drawing attention to the landmines and pitfalls of practicing intersectional feminism at CWRU, this session will feature a discussion on the stereotypical identities and roles on campus in the fight for gender justice. Next, attendees will work together to present strategies to advocate for gender justice with (or without) the support of those who are in agreement with stereotypical identities.

This program is open to all individuals who are members of the CWRU community (students, staff and faculty), regardless of gender, who are interested in advocating for intersectional feminism and equity for all women.

The series focuses on inclusion in the women’s empowerment movement and address how individuals can support women of color.
