The second annual William Smith Women's Conference: “Celebrating the Sunlight: From the Roots to the Future — Growing an Inclusive Women's Movement,” will be Friday and Saturday, March 23 and 24 on the HWS campus.
This year's conference — organized in conjunction with the William Smith Centennial Celebration — was planned with the hopes of finding light in the midst of a world that often appears dark. It will be a space where ideas of peace, justice, activism, art, passion and feminism all collide in order to facilitate discussion and motivate action.
Registration may be completed by visiting Conference registration.
Events during the weekend will tackle a broad spectrum of issues involving new feminist movements that promote non-racist, non-hegemonic, non-classist, non-abelist and non-heterosexist attitudes and values. It will present the varied opinions and perspectives of women who historically have been left out of the feminist agenda.
Friday's events will open with presentations by author Cristina Page and performer Toshi Reagon. Saturday will be filled with a multiple voices speaker series in the morning and workshop sessions in the afternoon.
An Art and Activism Festival Saturday evening will conclude the conference. For a detailed schedule, visit Conference schedule.
