The Women’s March
The Women’s March: The Long View
Laura Micham, Jocelyn Olcott, Deondra Rose, and Ara Wilson
On Saturday, January 21st, massive demonstrations took place in 660 cities in the United States and throughout the world in one of the largest days of global protest in modern history. Join us for a wide-ranging panel discussion with Duke University scholars Laura Micham, Jocelyn Olcott, Deondra Rose, and Ara Wilson on the Women’s March. We will discuss the place of the event within longer histories of feminist organizing, the cultural and symbolic politics at play in the march, its broader political and policy implications, and the possible futures of the movement. The event will be moderated by Laurent Dubois.
