Whether you work in social services, unions, victim advocacy, or anti-war,you community activists are the foot soldiers in the struggle for a just society. Oppression based on class and nationality are often highlighted in our movements, yet without a clear program of identifying and fighting gender oppression the efficacy of this precious work is greatly diminished.

This conference is for those seeking a better world – whatever your gender or background may be. This conference is open to all! Please reach out to members in your organization or church to participate in this important event. While primarily for Triangle Area Residents, we are honored to have strong women advocates and activists from San Diego, Atlanta, Richmond, New York, and Asheville joining us to help lead discussions and speak about their work.

Workshops Include: Women and the Environmental Justice Movement; Addressing Gender Dynamics in Language and Meetings; Women in the Workplace and Labor Movement; Imperialism, Women, and War; Men Confronting Male Privilege; Feminism, and Feminist Movements; Sexual Assault – Community Responses, Domestic Violence – What Can Be Done?, Breaking the Myth of the Gender Binary.

Shit, I’d like to go to that.
Or at least know that IMPACT will be there.

Talk about a way to change stereotypes and myths about the female body.
