Pugh

Allison Pugh is Professor of Sociology and Chair of the Department of Women, Gender and Sexuality at the University of Virginia. Her research and teaching focus on how economic trends – from commodification to job insecurity to automation – shape the way people forge connections and find meaning and dignity at home and at work.

Congratulations Matthew!

Led by WGS affiliates David Getsy and Cole Rizki, the working group will “have two main foci: first, to discuss the role of global history within transgender studies and, second, to encourage development of curricular and research activities in transgender studies at the University of Virginia. The working group will engage in research exchanges among members and develop public-facing programs in Spring 2023 to incite interdepartmental and interdisciplinary conversations.”

Mikki Kendall in conversation with the Women’s Center

Description:
Come hear Mikki Kendall, author of Hood Feminism and Amazons, Abolitionists, and Activists: A Graphic History of Women's Fight for Their Rights, and her inspirational message on why we can't wait to meet the basic survival needs of everyone. In reminding us that food insecurity, access to quality education, safe neighborhoods, a living wage, and medical care are all feminist issues, she issues a ferocious clarion call to all would-be feminists to live out true community care of all.
