| 0 Comments
Please note that it's not too late to sign up for the Women's Center workshop "Are We There Yet? Allies for Women's Equity."

Wednesday, March 30
2:00-4:00 p.m.
325 Education Sciences Building

How do you respond to the rumors that women have reached equality? What can you to say when you hear a sexist joke, or when you think someone is being put in an uncomfortable situation? 

In this interactive workshop, participants discuss their experiences, increase their knowledge of women's status today, think about intersections of gender with race, ethnicity, sexuality, ability, and culture, discuss language and privilege, and practice bystander interventions. Leave with concrete tools to be more effective allies! 

FREE. RSVP online at http://z.umn.edu/wmnequity.
