Program Description

Event Details

Throughout US history, feminist efforts have seen transformative change in women’s rights and responsibilities. However, those who benefit and advance from these efforts are most often white, middle-class, cisgender and straight women. In this webinar, we will unpack the history of who has been left out of (or intentionally denied access to) feminist movements and women’s rights circles throughout history, examining social issues such as reproductive justice, voting, and the #MeToo movement. We will also discuss the unmarked nature of whiteness and the reality of “safe spaces” for women of multiple marginalized identities.
