Gloria Steinem documentary screening & panel

Join us and the Center for Women's and Gender Studies for a screening of the recent Gloria Steinem documentary:

Thursday, March 22
TS Painter Hall 4.42

What do you think of Gloria Steinem as a feminist icon?  Do you agree with how she has been made emblematic of feminism?  How do you feel about the politics of the 'second wave' compared to current feminisms and your own perspective?  

Come discuss these issues and the documentary with our panel of distinguished professors, moderated by Sue Heinzelman, English professor and the director of CWGS:

  • Gloria Gonzalez-Lopez, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology
  • Joy James, Visiting Professor, Department of African and African Diaspora Studies
  • Zipporah Wiseman, Professor, School of Law
As activists for gender justice, what can we say about Gloria Steinem and her legacy?  Come to the screening and let your voice be heard!
