Uppity Women

Thursday, August 4, 2022 | 1:00 – 2:15pm, Hawaii

Cascading global crises and opportunistic political leaders at home and abroad are challenging societal progress on gender roles and definitions of masculinity and femininity, eroding hard-fought gains in women’s workforce participation, reproductive funding and choice, and renormalizing misogynistic and discriminatory language at the highest levels. This seeming backward slide has left women across the globe struggling to understand the times, the struggle, and the language to be reclaimed. Join uppity women leading change in discussing whether women are gaining ground in representation, rights, equality, and voice or whether we are seeing a retrenchment of patriarchy, and what can be done individually and collectively to challenge systemic gender discrimination and empower and advance women globally.
