Talk Back Tuesday

Talk Back Tuesdays

Join the Center for Women and Gender Equity for a monthly Talk Back discussion series. The Center creates a space to discuss topics of gender justice and other forms of intersectional gender equity. The Center has hosted a number of leaders at Grand Valley State University as well as those in the community. 

The format of Talk Back Tuesdays varies, but typically speakers share information area related to their area of expertise followed by Q&A from attendees. It is our hope that attendees will leave feeling motivated to transform the world in which we live or will further research or investigate the topics discussed.

In the words of Palo Freire, "Human beings are not built in silence, but in word, in work, in action-reflection (2018).” It is through the dialogue of the members and leaders of our various communities working together that we fight for liberation through discussion and dialogue.

Light refreshments will be provided






Audience: All are welcome to attend



Femme Film Friday

Femme Film Friday

Femme Film Friday is a monthly showing of a film centered around themes of feminism, gender, intersectional experiences, socioeconomic status, and gender justice. While the goal of these showings is to focus on how various topics and genres interact with gender, what CWGE is most excited about is fostering an environment where conversation can be held in a relaxed and comfortable setting. It's a plus if students are able to find interest in these chosen films or even representations of their own lived experiences. Bring a friend, or two, and join us for Femme Film Friday!

Refreshments will be provided




Audience: All are welcome to attend
