- Women's summit
- "Though law professor Kimberlé Crenshaw coined the term 'intersectionality' in 1989, the concept has been an important framework within feminist theory since the 19th century when African American women sought to articulate the simultaneous oppressions they suffered as a result of inequalities related to their race, gender and class. The keynote will explore the usefulness of employing an intersectional lens as feminists navigate a more complex political terrain in the 21st century around a broader range of social problems, including homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and Islamaphobia."--From event website: http://www.uvm.edu/~ues/womens-summit/breakfast-keynote.html.
