This Week’s TOP 6 Events – 10/7/13

We are kicking off the second week of October with many important discussions and events happening right here on campus! Don’t miss a single one:

(Ordered by Date)

Amy Swerdlow Lunch Brigade

When: Monday October 7 12pm

Where: Wrexham Living Room (45 Wrexham Rd, walking distance from main campus)

“What are the pressing issues for women as we move into the 21st century? Together, we will continue our discussion about the relationship between scholarship, work, and life. Bring your lunch and we will provide coffee, tea, and dessert. We hope you will join us as we reinvigorate our commitment to building a bridge between the academy and community, and to our activist roots.

In light of recent events, our first discussion will be a continuation from last year. We will discuss sexual assault on college campuses and address the following questions: What does Sarah Lawrence do and what have other colleges done to address the problem of sexual assault on campus? What has worked? What are possible actions that can be taken to address the problem?”

On the Hot Plate: “Day of the Girl: Speak Out Against Gender Bias and Advocate for Girls’ Rights Everywhere”

When: Tuesday October 8 12:30pm-1:30pm

Where: Bates Student Dining

“The Hot Plate is a lunchtime conversation on social justice issues. Coming up on the Hot Plate: “Day of the Girl: Speak Out Against Gender Bias and Advocate for Girls’ Rights Everywhere”. The United Nations declared October 11th as the official International Day of the Girl. Their mission is ‘to help galvanize worldwide enthusiasm for goals to better girls’ lives, providing an opportunity for them to show leadership and reach their full potential’. In recognition of the second annual campaign for the Day of the Girl, we open the lunchtime discussion to talk about how girls are still facing inequalities, gender biases and discrimination. How do we make others aware of these ongoing issues? What can we do at SLC to continue the discussion and spread the word to make change? Keep a look out for the Hot Plate posters around campus! We welcome all faculty, staff & students to attend! Contact Jennifer Johal, Graduate Student Assistant for more information”
