Roundtable luncheon focusing on defining feminism
The Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy will sponsor a roundtable discussion focusing on “Defining Feminism” at 11:45 a.m. Friday, Oct. 24 in the Miley Hall executive dining room.
Last month, actress and U.N. Women’s goodwill ambassador Emma Watson gave a speech on feminism and gender equality at U.N. headquarters in New York City. She was announcing the launch of U.N. Women’s “HeForShe” campaign, but she offered her own personal commentary on the misconceptions of feminism. The speech sparked conversations about feminism across the world, but the ultimate question remains: What does it mean to be a feminist?
During this roundtable discussion, participants will discuss the definition of feminism and how feminism has been framed through various perspectives. They will also discuss the implications of feminism’s misconceptions for gender equality.
Roundtable discussions are open to Salve Regina students, faculty and staff, and lunch is provided. As space is extremely limited, those interested in attending should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
