Presented by Students for Criminal Justice Reform and Wagner Women's Caucus


Womxn challenges the prevailing patriarchal belief that women are a subset of men and the lack of intersectionality on traditional feminist movements and discourse around women's issues. At the height of mass incarceration, where approximately 2.3 million individuals are incarcerated, the conversation has been centered around the impact on men of color. Although that is a crucial conversation to have, it is important to discuss the rapid rateat which womxn are being incarcerated and marginalized as well.

Through a series of conversations, we will challenge the notion of criminalization through an intersectional lens. We will discuss the impact mass incarceration has had on womxn, but also broaden the conversation of criminalization to include the different ways womxn identities are oppressed. Note: Each conversation willhave a different group and topic (ex. reproductive justice, trans women, etc.)

Speakers:Mariame Kaba, educator, organizer, curator andFounder & Director of Project NIA & Co-founder of Survived & Punished; Miyhosi Benton, Associate with the Women and Justice Project; Myaisha Hayes, Community Organizer
