Whether you use the term feminist, womanist, or something else, this conversation brings women across generations together to talk about issues that both unite and divide. Enriching and complicating one’s views are the intersections of age, race, class, ethnicity, culture, and sexual identity. Join us for a dynamic, nuanced look at the continuing struggle for women’s equality across generations.

Panelists: Debra Fitzpatrick, Program Director, Center on Women and Public Policy, University of Minnesota Humphrey School of Public Affairs; Brittany M. Lewis, Graduate Fellow, University of Minnesota Department of Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies; Kimberia Sherva, Director, Slutwalkmn.org; Sandra Vargas, President and CEO, Minneapolis Foundation.

Moderator: Peg Lonnquist, Director, University of Minnesota Women’s Center.
