Feminist Leadership Through Women’s Studies

SUPPORT
Eliana Rivero, Stephanie Troutman Robbins and Judith Temple

Founded 45 years ago, Women’s Studies at the University of Arizona began as an interdisciplinary program that provided a curriculum and research emphasizing women’s experiences and perspectives. Today, the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies provides a feminist approach to teaching, research, and outreach that works to contest historical, ongoing, and pervasive oppressions based on gender, race, sexuality, class, ability, and citizenship.

Gender and Women Studies faculty are leaders, allies, and activists through their research and community engagement. They ask new, innovative questions and develop theories that transform scholarship in many fields. On campus and in the community, they work toward greater equality in employment, health care, education, politics, families, and other social settings.

What issues did women faculty face as they founded and developed the Women’s Studies program? What barriers are women in higher education confronting now?

This virtual panel discussion presented by the University of Arizona Libraries explores these questions, examines the persistence of gender inequality, and addresses how ongoing efforts can be strengthened.

Panelists include:

Dr. Eliana Rivero, Professor Emerita, Spanish and Portuguese; former Affiliate Faculty, Latin American Studies and Mexican American Studies; early Faculty Member, Women’s Studies
Dr. Stephanie Troutman Robbins, Department Head, Gender and Women’s Studies
Dr. Judith Temple, Professor Emerita, English and Gender and Women’s Studies; former Department Head, Women’s Studies

Dr. Patricia MacCorquodale, Professor Emerita in the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies, will moderate the discussion.

The Special Collections online exhibition, Founding Mothers: From the Ballot Box to the University,highlights the 45th anniversary of Women’s Studies at the University of Arizona and the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the United States.

This event is 6pm MST (AZ)
