Nov 28 panel to address feminism and undergraduate education

POST by Meredith Crowder

Penn State’s Commission for Women knows that its important to advocate for gender equality in the classroom as well as in the workplace, and we hope to share what that knowledge and passion with the rest of the community.

The mainstream education in America is problematic because of it’s lack of accommodation to the different identities in this country through gender, race and sexuality. Come to a panel discussion in the 129C HUB on November 28, 2012 to explore more on this topic.

Date: Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Time: 12:30 to 2:00 p.m.

Location: 129C HUB-Robeson Cultural Center

The commission provided funding for  three undergraduate Women’s Studies students  to present their research on this very topic at the National Women’s Studies Association’s (NWSA) annual conference  November 8–11, 2012 .  This year  the conference was titled, “Feminism Unbound: Imagining a Feminist Future.”

The commission is proud to support and showcase these students in their endeavors to dig deeper and analyze such a complex problem in our society.  All students, faculty, and staff from across the university with an interest in this topic are welcome. Keep posted to find out why presenting to a group of their peers won’t be a problem for the three panelists.
