Feminism Workshops Begin in July

Filed in Event News by on June 29, 2016

Nile Sisters is pleased to announce three feminism workshops to be presented in the months of July and August 2016. Feminism is the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes. These workshops are part of a research project written by Marisa Meno, a student at San Diego State University», in partnership with Bread and Roses Center for Feminist Research and Activism», which maintains a goal to build a stronger local feminist community.

Ms. Meno’s research project will attempt to

  • determine how immigrant and refugee women perceive feminism and women’s roles in society
  • identify obstacles that these women face in accessing social services and / or employment
  • inform participants of key feminism topics
  • demonstrate how feminism respects diverse cultures and belief systems
  • encourage participants to express their opinions
  • encourage participants to voice struggles that they may have faced personally

If the feminism workshops reveal that local immigrant and refugee women are experiencing obstacles to equality, the San Diego feminist community could rally to help remove the barriers.
