This lecture is part of the Spring 2022 DISH IT UP series, "Everyday Equity". Issues of gender equity emerge in our lives every day in almost every space and intersect with other social and environmental issues. Gendered scripts and expectations impact our economic security, health, safety, education, experiences with criminal justice and immigration, human rights, humanitarian aid, climate resilience, and participation in democracy. This spring, the Women’s Resources Center is taking a look at gender equity its many forms as well as how women-identified leaders are working to flip those scripts, challenge norms, and fight for equality and justice. Funded by the Student Cultural Programming Fee. FREE LUNCH will be available at this talk.
