Bringing Global Feminism Home
On March 8th, International Women’s Day, join Charlottesville NOW for an important conversation on the importance of ERA on the Global Feminist front.
Powerhouse presenters Kolieka Seigle, DemocraShe and Jan Strout, Bozeman CEDAW Initiative are “Bringing Global Feminism Home,” revealing the intersection of domestic policy and international policy on women’s rights worldwide.
They’ll cover such topics as reproductive justice (global gag rule), constitutional equality, violence against women, and feminist foreign policy. And they’ll answer the question, “what the heck is CEDAW?” (Hint: UN treaty barring all forms of discrimination against women, ratified by nearly all the world’s countries, but not the U.S.!)
Also presenting will be Prasidha Padmanabhan, a student who founded an organization created to combat sexism through education, advocacy and fighting for women’s rights and convinced her large Virginia school system to include more women’s history in the curriculum.
