Women everywhere continue to experience discrimination in everyday life: in institutions, the private sector, religious organizations, families, schools, health systems, and justice systems. Gender bias is everywhere.
The stereotypes that women face are powerful and make every aspect of their lives difficult. This is a consequence of a patriarchal system that abuses power in all ways from hiring decisions to sexual abuse. Discrimination can be subtle or overt, conscious or unconscious, and can be upheld by both men and women.
In our webinar series, Making-Visible: Women, we will focus on the need to empower women, and the inequalities and injustices of gender bias.
This webinar will be led by Legal Director of the National Women’s Law Center and social justice activist Sunu P. Chandy.
Sunu Chandy is the Legal Director of the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) and works with all of the Center’s teams in their work to address and present sex discrimination in many contexts.
We will learn more from Sunu about her work at NWLC, which takes on issues ranging from the right to full reproductive health care to protecting students from sexual harassment.
Sunu also serves on the boards of The Transgender Law Center and Split This Rock, a poetry and social justice organization. She has performed her poetry and led creative writing workshops in a variety of settings for the past 25 years.
We are so grateful that Sunu has agreed to join us. She is a powerful advocate for women’s empowerment and you won’t want to miss her stories on the legal fights she’s lead against the inequalities and injustices of gender bias.
All Making-Visible webinars are curated by Adriana Arizpe and Annie Mahon.
