Throughout time women's bodies have been sites of contention: judged, commodified, regulated, or oppressed by societal structures of power. Join Brooklyn Historical Society and the Ms. Foundation for Women for a conversation on reclaiming power and agency in women's bodies of all types, sizes, colors, and experiences. Tressie McMillan Cottom, professor at University of North Caorlina at Chapel Hill and author of "Thick: And Other Essays," joins Jennifer Finney Boylan, activist and prolific author, for a discussion that traverses race, reproductive justice, identity, and more. Activist, writer, and Director of Communications for the Ms. Foundation Raquel Willis moderates.
This program is presented as part of the series "Women + Power: 100 Years After the 19th Amendment," which looks at the relationship between gender, power, and the ongoing work toward equality in the century since a landmark movement.
Please note that the capacity for this webinar is 500 attendees.
