Making Feminist & Queer Movements More Inclusive: a talk by Julia Serano

  • Albert Brenner Glickman Family Library 314 Forest Ave Portland, Maine 04101 (map)

Please join USM's Women & Gender Studies Program and USM's Center for Sexualities and Gender Diversity for a talk with Julia Serano.

In this talk, Julia discusses numerous strategies that she forwards in her book "Excluded: Making Feminist and Queer Movements More Inclusive" that empower us to challenge all forms of sexism and marginalization, even those that we may be unaware of or less familiar with. These strategies include recognizing natural variation in sex, gender, and sexuality, and that people are fundamentally heterogeneous; moving beyond fixed views of sexism and marginalization that deny many individual’s unique situations, experiences, and perspectives; and learning to more generally recognize double standards, double-binds, and methods of invalidation that are routinely used to undermine minorities and marginalized groups.

This talk is free and open to the public. More information here.

**Outright organizers will tabling at the event, connecting with community members about our queer/trans movement here in Maine.**
