Forward: Creating Feminist Futures

Oct. 22, 9:30 am to 3:00 pm

A symposium exploring how feminist advocacy and gender analysis can help address local and national problems of inequality. Featuring keynote speaker Rebecca Traister, author of Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women's Anger.

The year 2020 is the centennial of the 19th Amendment that extended women’s voting rights. It’s also the 20thanniversary of The Women’s Place, an office at The Ohio State University that promotes gender equity in higher education. This virtual symposium brings the two occasions together to address women’s advocacy. 

Conversations and workshops will address women’s political participation, health policy, teaching, education, and leadership. The keynote speaker will be Rebecca Traister, New York magazine writer and feminist author of three books on women in politics: Big Girls Don’t CryAll the Single Ladies and Good and Mad.

Public health professor Tasleem Padamsee will speak on one of the panels.

This free event is open to Ohio State faculty, staff, students, alumni and community partners of all genders. Move the needle forward with us on gender inequities by using #TWPForward. Register by October 20 to join individual sessions or tune in all day.
