Women’s and Gender Studies Presents: “Onto the Pages & Into the Streets: Feminist Activism & Print Culture in the 1970’s” on March 29th @ 5pm in the Ithaca Falls Room!

Hello Honorites!

The Women’s and Gender Studies presents a talk on feminist activism in the 1970s by Agatha Beins, Associate Professor in the Department of Multicultural Women’s and Gender Studies at Texas Women’s University on March 29th at 5pm-6pm in the Ithaca  Falls Room.  20180322231318138_1.png

Talk Description:   A social movement must happen somewhere: spaces where new worlds could be imagined and places where activities could occur.

“In this talk, I explore how feminist newsletters and newspapers provided both places and spaces where the women’s liberation movement in the 1970s could exist – in the pages of periodicals and in the streets.

Not only did these publications convey where feminism was happening in a local community, they also offered glimpses of how women throughout the world were resisting gender-based injustices, enabling readers to see themselves as part of a larger imagined community of activists.  Moreover, the periodicals themselves were sites of feminism, materials in which the movement materialized.  In this sense, periodicals were crucial to the production, existence, and growth of feminism during this decade.”
