Originating Calendar
Women and Gender in Global Perspectives Program (WGGP)

Join us for another dialog in WGGP’s ongoing conversation with grassroots activists. This time we will explore with activists from Brazil and South Africa how their movements engage in practices of care and solidarity to combat insecurity in food, health, land and housing, and violence based on race, class, and gender inequalities.  

Presenters:

Xola Qosha
