Gender, Sex, and Power: Beyond White Suffrage

This teach-in organized by the Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies, entitled Gender, Sex, and Power: Beyond White Suffrage, will demonstrate the vibrant research and teaching in LGBTQ+ and feminist studies on campus and will challenge mainstream notions of how feminism is defined and who it serves. We aim to broaden discussions linked to the centennial of the 19th amendment and bicentennial of Susan B Anthony’s birth beyond voting, women, and Anthony herself, and to instead provoke questions about the state of our field and render explicit the ways feminist and queer theory are relevant in examining a wide range of concerns in our communities, scholarship, activism, and on our campus.
