Carolina Public Humanities: Speaking of Feminism Panel
Friday 9/27, 7 pm
From the Women's Marches to the MeToo movement, it is clear that feminist activism is still alive and well in the 21st century. But how does a new generation of activists understand the work of the movement today? Rachel F. Seidman, director of the Southern Oral History Program in UNC-Chapel Hill's Center for the Study of the American South, presents insights from 25 feminist activists from around the United States in her new book, Speaking of Feminism: Today's Activists on the Past, Present, and Future of the U.S. Women's Movement. Join us for wine, cheese, and a conversation between Professor Seidman and one of the stars of her book, Ivanna Gonzalez, social justice activist and deputy director of Blueprint NC. This event is free and open to the public, and copies of the book will be available for purchase.
