George Washington FMLA Hosts Panel Discussion on Feminism and Race

It was standing room only last month, during the GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY FMLA discussion on the future of feminist activism and race, culture, class, and age. Over one hundred students and community activists attended the GWU FMLA, Women’s Advocates to Terminate Sexism (WATTS), and Positive Force DC sponsored event. The panel featured Heather Booth, the original “Jane” the underground Abortion Counseling Service while a student at the University of Chicago in the 1960’s; Sirena Riley, former FMF Campus Co-Director and *Colonize This!* contributor; and Asantewaa Nkrumah Ture, civil and labor rights activist. This is the first of many discussions to take place on campus about race, class, gender, youth, and feminism. Great work!
