What you will learn:
Just when it feels as though women are gaining ground in the quest for equality - after all, 60% of college students are female and women routinely outperform men in leadership assessments - a landmark decision is made and much of that progress feels lost. The 2022 decision by the Supreme Court of the United States to overturn Roe v Wade marks a significant turning point in society's progress towards a just and equitable society. The decision must be seen as not only affecting women, but of course also affecting men, transgender people, and non-binary and gender non-conforming people. But how exactly does this decision affect our daily lives? And what does it mean for gender-based inclusion efforts? What can we do - as members of the group but also as allies - to understand the issue fairly and then act on it? This 75 minute Elective will briefly track the history of such decisions alongside social progress for women, and then critically examine the factors that continue to push and pull at gender based equality. The Elective will include a brief facilitated discussion to bring out and amplify the various perspectives and voices of people who continue to grapple with this latest decision.
