Event Details

South Asian Gender Violence through Music, Film, & Discussion
What does gendered violence mean in the context of religion, culture, and socioeconomic status in South Asian countries? Why do these countries continue to target their weakest and most oppressed? How can we fight for liberation? Join us for a weekend of exploring South Asian gender justice and feminism through musical performances, a short film screening, and discussions.
The event will take place on November 10th and 11th in the Ella Weed room (Milbank 203) on Barnard’s campus, starting at 7PM on both days. Dinner will be provided!
