Chronicling Our Lives: Women’s History Month
Thursday, Mar. 3
Online event; Open only to all mentees and mentors across all programs.
“What if half of history was missing?” Gina Luria Walker, a gender studies professor and historian asks. This is a salient question, given that cis-gender men are historically overrepresented as the authors and subjects of both history books and biographies. At this Community Chat, we’ll reflect on which histories get shared and also do some writing exercises that will help us chronicle our own lives.
Community Chats are spaces for healing, exploration, laughter and love. We gather to harness our collective creative energy and find clarity and comfort through writing prompts and open conversation.
