Exploring Gendered Violence in the Community

September 201st | 1 PM to 3 PM | Zoom (Registration is Required)

There is increasing hostility toward gender expression and, particularly the teaching of gender studies, which is reflected in the recent stabbing in a gender studies class at Waterloo.

This workshop takes a deeper look at gender and gendered expression and will involve discussions around gender, a short exploration of gender, and writing prompts to explore gender and oppression. Together we will work on making our campus and community safer.
