Libbin’ it up
In case you need another example of Speaker’s Bureau being the best organization on campus, journalist, activist, and feminist Gloria Steinem will deliver a lecture at Zankel on February 21 as this year’s keynote speaker.
Steinem was (and is) one of the most influential leaders of the women’s liberation movement. As the founder of Ms. magazine in 1969, she was instantly catapulted to the national stage as a prominent and controversial feminist. She has helped found the National Women’s Political Caucus, the Women’s Action Alliance, the Coalition of Labor Union Women, and the Women’s Media Center, and has remained an outspoken commentator on a vast range of political issues related to gender and sexuality. Basically she’s hot shit and we’re all very lucky to have her here.
The title of the talk is “The Longest Revolution,” and according to Speaker’s Bureau, she will discuss “the social movements of the past 4 decades and politics of gender, the economic power of the female and minority consumer market, and workplace issues.” Relevant stuff indeed.
Tickets went on sale today at the Zankel box office and online. They’re FREE FOR SKIDMORE STUDENTS and they’re definitely going to sell out quickly, so grab them while you can.
