WOW "Multiple Identities"

Friday, February 18, 2011

Women on Wednesday presents ´┐ŻMultiple Identities´┐Ż noon Feb. 16 at the Atwood Theatre

Labeling women with one brush stroke negates the diversity inherent in women’s lives. It is the intersection of multiple identities, experiences and background that influences women’s lives. Women on Wednesday presents “Multiple Identities” noon Feb. 23 at the Atwood Theatre. The event is free and open to the public.

Panelists will discuss their experiences with balancing those identities, including their involvement and activism on an array of issues affecting young women, including race, class, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Panelists are:                                                  

  • Njeri Clement, St. Cloud State student majoring in women’s studies. She is originally from Kenya and has been involved in women’s issues, especially the impact of HIV/AIDS. As a NGATHA International board member, a non-profit organization in Minnesota, Clement has been involved in advocacy work to inform people about the impact of HIV/AIDS in Africa.
  • Sara Kost, St. Cloud State senior majoring in secondary social studies education, has been involved with the LGBT Resource Center for five years, including two years as co-chair of the GLBT Alliance. Kost has presented about LGBT issues in schools both on campus and at the 2010 Minnesota Council for Social Studies conference.
  •  Azania Tripp, University of Minnesota student majoring in youth studies. As a former student at St. Cloud State, she served as the vice president of Asian Students in Action and was active in Players Performance Group, a public forum for contemporary social and cultural issues.
