Let’s hear your #FierceVoices!
On Wednesday, March 25th, come on out to an evening of speakers, glue & glitter, a little bit of running with scissors, and a whole bunch of discussion about claiming space for women and girls in media. This first event in the series looks at critically examining media using an anti-oppressive lens (and glue—there will be glue).
