Wo/men’s Conference at St. Mary’s College

On Saturday, March 3, 2012, 9am-5pm, Saint Mary’s College of California will be hosting The Wo/men’s Conference 2012: Wo/men Engaging in Change.

It is an event that grew out of student interest in learning more about the perspectives, aspirations, and experiences of women in our society, and how women can create social change.

This year’s conference is designed for college students from across the Bay Area and will focus on women’s leadership roles in both personal and public spaces, paying particular attention to the work of women in the political sphere in this presidential election year.

The conference is organized around the celebration of International Women’s Day, which originated at the turn of the twentieth century and is currently celebrated in over 100 countries.

Their use of “Wo/men” developed out of their mission to be an inclusive community. The conference invites women and men to explore the influences of race, class, gender, sexuality, personal identity and social constructs in our society. The conference welcomes students, activists, faculty and community members. Participants: 130 college students from across the Bay Area

Workshops: They are looking for individuals and groups to facilitate 70-minute interactive workshops and 20-minute information sessions.

A Workshop Proposal Form is attached and can also be found on their Conference Website:
