Project Saraounia: Waking the Inner Queen in Niger, West Africa
The Peace Corps celebrates Women's History Month with the Women's Center at Pacific Lutheran University. Peace Corps Representative and returned Volunteer Brian Minalga presents Project Saraounia, a project conceived in his Peace Corps community that focuses on greater access, advocacy, and equity for gender and development in Niger, West Africa. The Hausa word for "queen," Saraounia recognizes in all women the potential strength, talent, and leadership of queens. Project Saraounia employs art and creative expression as its primary conduit for women's and girls' empowerment: sculpture, poetry, music, and dance. Come celebrate Women's History Month with a Project Saraounia slideshow and presentation of its story from Niger to the US.
Note: This event is graciously being hosted by MAPPE and the Men’s Project.
March 6 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM in Anderson University Center: 203 (Regency Room)
MAKERS with Amy Richards
View part of the documentary "MAKERS: Women Who Make America" and join a discussion with Amy Richards, well-known feminist activist and co-founder of the Third Wave Foundation. "MAKERS: Women Who Make America" tells the remarkable story of the most sweeping social revolution in American history, as women have asserted their rights to a full and fair share of political power, economic opportunity, and personal autonomy. It's a revolution that has unfolded in public and private, in courts and Congress, in the boardroom and the bedroom, changing not only what the world expects from women, but what women expect from themselves. "MAKERS" brings this story to life with priceless archival treasures and poignant, often funny interviews with those who led the fight, those who opposed it, and those first generations to benefit from its success.
