The Historic Demands and Current Struggle of the Feminist Movement in Chile
Presentation and Discussion with Chilean artist & activist Yanira Obando and Portland-based filmmaker & activist Kelly Baur.
Thursday November 15 at 4:30 p.m.
Join us for a presentation and short film screening about the feminist struggle against patriarchy and neoliberalism in Chile, from the Pinochet dictatorship to the present.
Learn about the ways that young feminist activists have occupied their schools and universities in protest, and are leading an international movement against gender violence and for reproductive justice.
The event will also include a discussion about the ways the Chilean experience can offer insights for current feminist activism in the US, opening the opportunity to build international feminist solidarity under the banner of #metoo, #yotambién, and #niunamenos.
Co-sponsored by the Feminist Student Union, Gender Studies, Hispanic Studies, Latin American Studies, Art, and the Office of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement (IME).
This event is free and open to the public. For Information on campus parking, go here!
