An online event

 

 

 

Friday, October 15
2021
12:00 to 8:00 PM (Eastern Daylight Time)


The Vivas Las Queremos Project Committee in collaboration with Urdimbres Feminismos Decoloniales y

Saberes Nómadas, el Rule Comunidad de Saberes, the Department of Languages and Linguistics, University

of Texas El Paso, and the Department of Photography and Imaging, Tisch School of the Arts, New York

University is pleased to present a one day virtual forum in which women’s voices from Mexico, the United

States, Colombia, Ecuador, and England will come together in a rotating sequence of creative conversations
to discuss issues that relate to gender-based violence in its many permutations, including the toxic elements

borne by misogyny, domestic abuse, ingrained sexist attitudes, and traditional male-dominant practices.

These conversations will not only seek to sharpen definitions of gender-related abuse and violence but will

highlight meaningful ways of countering such actions with positive methodologies of redress and remediation.
