Activist Night: What is Solidarity for Women of Color?
The #solidarityisforwhitewomen caused an uproar recently in social media and the blogosphere, with Women of Color questioning what their position is within the feminist movement. This conversation will explore how feminist Women of Color navigate their experiences within a society where solidarity has been commonly defined by white women. We will discuss recent developments within the feminist movement as it pertains to Women of Color and how politics/policy, pop culture and the media affect their lives. Panelists will participate in a roundtable discussion, engaging in conversation with one another conducive to defining Solidarity for Women of Color by the end of the evening.
The following have been confirmed as panelists:
Lori Adelman, Executive Director for Feministing
Olivia Canlas, NYC Chapter Coordinator for AF3IRM
Tiloma Jayasinghe, Executive Director for Sakhi for South Asian Women
Nicole Moore, Founder of The Hotness
Patricia Valoy, Femnist Blogger for “Womanisms” and “Everyday Feminism”
We encourage everyone irrespective of identities to attend and bring an open mind to this challenging and engaging conversation. To get the conversation going on what you think Solidarity is for Women of Color, use hashtag #NOWwomenofcolor.
