LA FUERZA: Creating a Latina Feminist Archive

presented by Mariana Gutierrez, Advocacy and Wellness Coordinator, Women's Resources Center

Join us for a special Women's History Month presentation as we uncover the critical role of Latina students in establishing La Casa Cultural Latina and Latina/o Studies at the University of Illinois. 

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.

 

Alternating Mondays from Noon – 1pm (with free lunch) at the Women’s Resources Center, 616 E. Green Street, Suite 202 (Next to  McDonalds), Champaign, IL 61820 For more information: visit: https://oiir.illinois.edu/womens-center
