Linda GradsteinLinda Gradstein, an award-winning former NPR correspondent based in Jerusalem, will be speaking about women in Israeli society. While Israel is widely admired for including women in army service and for being among the first countries to elect a female Prime Minister, Israeli women face many of the same challenges as females world-wide as well as issues unique to Israel. In this talk, Gradstein addresses the issues as she has seen and lived them, from her own experiences with rabbinic courts to her daughter’s army service and beyond.

When Women Won the Right to Vote: An American Fiction @ Online via Zoom, Register at link below
Sep 9 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm

Dr. Lisa Tetrault, Carnegie Mellon University, author of The Myth of Seneca Falls will present this Zoom lecture (link information coming soon) followed by a Q & A session sponsored by the UNCG History Department and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program.

When women won passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, they did not win the right to vote, despite repeated claims that they did.

Just what, then, did the woman suffrage amendment do?  Clarifying this history, this talk also positions 1920 as the middle of a much larger story about the pursuit of voting rights, a struggle that remains unfinished and ongoing.

Dylan Reddish

Anima Vox
Carole Ott Coelho and Tadeu Coelho

Ecstatic poetry, characterized by experiences of selflessness, suspension of time, and physical or spiritual rapture, has a long and deep tradition throughout many cultures in the world. Women’s voices of ecstasy have historically been silenced, dismissed, or forgotten. This project will explore, celebrate, and reclaim women’s poetic voices and experiences of ecstasy throughout history through a musical commission, a call for compositions by female composers, and free improvisation by flute and soprano duo, Anima Vox (Carole Ott Coelho and Tadeu Coelho) in collaboration with dancer/choreographer Dylan Reddish. As part of the She Can We Can celebration at UNCG, Anima Vox will premier Poemas eróticos by Mexican composer Adriana Romero, perform award winning compositions written specifically for this project, and create an improvised work based on the poetry of women’s rights activist Muna Lee.

Voices for Reproductive Justice @ UNCG Campus, McIver Building
Apr 13 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

She Can We Can logo “Voices for Reproductive Justice, “ a university-community partnership sponsored symposium, highlights the application of a social justice and health equity approach to reproductive health. Historically, reproductive health advocates have applied a narrower, rights-based framework that focuses on bodily autonomy and has privileged the voices of white, middle-class women.

Reproductive justice, defined as the “right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities,” shifts that focus by applying an equity lens, broadening the health-related issues addressed, and centering diverse voices. A day-long symposium is planned for Spring of 2022. It will include presentations, focused discussions, and performances around the defining issues within reproductive justice. National and regional leaders and scholars in the field will interrogate current and historical narratives of reproductive health from diverse perspectives. The symposium will also introduce emerging scholars’ research and the work of community leaders. ALL voices–joined together. 

Biannual webinars are planned to help raise awareness as we prepare for the Symposium in 2022. Please register and  join us for the Spring 2021 Symposium on April 13, 2021 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. Visit our website at Public Health Education
