Womanhood and Women Rights
October 20 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Panel discussion led by an art historian, with Elia Alba, Artist and Author of the Supper Club, Lina Puerta and an invited gender scholar. The discussion will commemorate the 100th anniversary of woman suffrage and encourage especially Latinx communities to vote. Speakers will explore the theme of identity at the crossroads of the individual and the collective. What rights do we have as humans – how have such rights been suppressed on grounds of ‘categories’ of identity such as ethnicity or gender. How is an individual’s identity (and its expression) in current society influenced by identifications of gender and ethnicity. Could we move, as a society, towards surpassing such divisive categories towards a more ‘collective’ identity, seeing ourselves as citizens of the Earth. How would reconsiderations of gender identity influence our social, political, economic rights?
