Looking Ahead to Juneteenth: Women Advancing Racial, Social, and Gender Equality
This event is in the past.
As we celebrate Women’s History Month, this dynamic panel of Wayne State alumni will discuss how today’s woman is advancing racial, social, and gender equality. Despite significant progress, structural inequality based on gender, race, class, disability, and ethnicity persists around the world and is compounded and complicated by today’s challenges. Gender-based violence—rooted in patriarchy and laws, policies, and cultural norms aimed at curtailing rights—inflicts deep, lasting physical, psychological, and economic damage. People of color are disproportionately policed and incarcerated. Immigrants and LGBTQ+ people are targeted simply because of who they are. But today’s realities have helped fuel vibrant new leaders and movements engaging in innovative advocacy and forging powerful alliances.
