Next Monday, March 8th, is International Women’s Day, and the first day of the 20th Annual Global Women’s Rights Forum (GWRF) at USF.
The focus of the GWRF “is global women’s rights, privileging and devoting special attention to the contexts and perspectives of women from marginalized cultures and displaced communities, outside and inside the United States.”
Gleeson Library will be featured in 3 GWRF sessions this year!
“Gendered Ecologies” presented by Reanne Lacosta, Adrienne Johnson, and students from BIPOC Students for the Environment, will discuss Gleeson Library’s Gender and Environment online art gallery. Students in Spring 2020’s Gender and Environment class, taught by Adrienne Johnson, created this exhibit as part of the library’s Student Social Justice Exhibits program.
“Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon,” hosted by a team of Gleeson Library Librarians and Director of the Museum Studies Master of Arts Program and Professor of Art History and Museum Studies at USF, Paula Birnbaum, will address the gender gap on Wikipedia and provide training on the basics of Wikipedia editing, suggestions for articles to edit, and library resources and information with a focus on intersectional feminism that session participants can consult to make their Wikipedia edits.
“The Women of the USF Timeline Project, Present by The President’s Advisory Committee on the Status of Women (PACSW)” will feature University Archivist and PACSW member Annie Reid along with other PACSW members to discuss their current project to find and compile archival research about women identified students, faculty, and staff.
