    Open Discussion on Gender at the University!

    April 27, 2021

    The Committee on the Status of Women (CSW) works to promote and pursue equitable and just treatment for women and all members of the University community. The CSW seeks to both raise community awareness of issues that impact the status of women, collaborate with other organizations that advocate for gender issues, and identify concerns that need further study.

    To help identify concerns related to gender issues on campus, the CSW invites all members of the University community to its next meeting on Thursday, May 13 from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. (Zoom ID available here.) You are welcome to come for just a little bit or for the full time! All attendees are welcome to share concerns about gender issues on campus, ideas for ways we can do better, or simply just listen. Following this open discussion, we invite all attendees to stay for a dialogue on the topic “Feminism as Leadership at The University of Scranton.” This discussion may include but is not limited to:

    -What is “feminism,” and why is it relevant both for community members who are women and community members who are not women?
    -What does/doesn't feminism look like at the University, and who are our feminist leaders?
    -What does/doesn't feminism look like nationally, and who are feminist leaders in our country?
    -How might feminism function both as leadership and to support leadership?

    Attendees will also receive a CSW T-shirt!

    If you have a concern but are unable to attend, you are welcome to submit your concerns through the anonymous virtual suggestion box on the CSW website.

    Community members are also welcome to bring concerns to the open portion of any CSW meeting.

    The meeting schedule can be found here.
