Cultural Awareness Series: Samhita Mukhopadhyay and “Empowering Women”

Join us for “Empowering Women” and hear from Samhita Mukhopadhyay, the executive editor of Feministing.com, one of the largest feminist/social justice blogs, on Wednesday, March 14, 2012, at 7 p.m. in the Donahue Auditorium.

Mukhopadhyay states, “At Feministing, I’ve focused a lot on race, class, gender and sexuality from the perspective of activism, but not as much from the perspective of pop culture.”

Mukhopadhyay became interested in mainstream media depictions of women and how those depictions impact the lives of and women’s feelings about themselves creating a dialogue that promotes feminism and empowers women.
