Women’s Rights at Home
This panel will discuss the state of women's rights in the U.S. 50 years after Griswold v. Connecticut. Are women really better off? Did Griswold actually help women? Where is the United States still lacking, if anywhere, in terms of women's rights? What are women's rights? Where is the Supreme Court headed in terms of women's rights?
[Break - 10:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.]
Panel 2 - 10:30 a.m. - Noon (Library Auditorium)
Women’s Rights Abroad
Panelists: Tiffany Barrans, Isaac Kfir, Christine Venter
This panel will discuss how to advance women’s rights in cultures that do not value women’s rights. For example, how can we advance women’s rights where the law conflicts with the culture? What strategies should be employed to advance women’s rights, say in Muslim countries, or African countries, where women are guaranteed rights on paper but not in practice? Is the women’s rights movement another form of western imperialism?
