Feminist Food for Thought: Stop LGBTQ Street Harassment
Wednesday, March 21, 2012 from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM (EDT)
Join the George Washington University Graduate Feminists to hear about cutting-edge student scholarship and activism about street harassment and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) issues. This informal gathering over fair-trade coffee and cookies is a great opportunity to hear about what women's studies and LGBTQ studies students are working on and to network with other passionate activists.
You will hear from the following amazing people at this month's Feminist Food for Thought:
- Charles Pulliam-Moore, a journalism and communications major and LGBTQ studies minor who has done academic research on how harassment affects queer men's online spaces
- Patrick McNeil, a master's student whose thesis focuses on queer men's experiences with street harassment
- Chai Shenoy, an adjunct faculty member and co-founder of Collective Action for Safe Spaces (formerly known as Holla Back DC!)
- Holly Kearl, a GW women's studies alumna, the author of Stop Street Harassment, and the founder of International Anti-Street Harassment Week
You'll also find out how you can get involved in the Graduate Feminists' effort to raise awareness of trans harassment in public bathrooms.
All are welcome at this event! We'd love to talk about how these issues affect the DC community and beyond and how we can make public spaces safer for everyone.
Feminist Food for Thought is part of a series of discussions that the GW Graduate Feminists host every month. March's event is dedicated to street harassment as part of International Anti-Street Harassment Week.
