Still image from the film Nefertiti's DaughtersFebruary 25, 2016
Film Screening: Nefertiti's Daughters
Sponsors: Middle East Studies Center; OSU Libraries; The Women's Place
Thursday, 4 pm
Location: Thompson Library 165
Fee: Free

A story of women, art and revolution, this vibrant film documents the critical role that revolutionary street art played—and is continuing to play—in the political uprising of Egypt. Introducing a cadre of courageous and gifted female artists who are deeply involved in the struggle for social and political justice, Nefertiti's Daughters illustrates the surprising ways that artwork, instead of being relegated to dusty museums and academia, can instead become a powerful tool in the ongoing fight for civil and human rights.

Conversations with prominent Egyptian artists Bahia Shehab, Mira Shihadeh and Salma Samy—each from a different generation—weave throughout the film's narrative. As the women discuss their work and the ways that it is inspired by and responds to a violent and complicated political environment, viewers are offered a rare window into the struggles of living and creating in Egypt today

Also sponsored by Near Eastern Languages and Cultures Department; Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies; Mershon Center; Multicultural Center.

Portrait of Dr. Peggy McIntosh with quoteMay 3, 2016
White Men's Caucus Recharge with Peggy McIntosh
Sponsor: The Women's Place and the College of Arts and Sciences
Tuesday, 10 - 11:30 am
*Open to White Men's Caucus participants only

Dean David Manderscheid and The Women’s Place invite White Men’s Caucus participants to continue the privilege conversation with Dr. Peggy McIntosh. Dr. McIntosh is a scholar, pioneer and foremost authority on white privilege.

The concept of white privilege gained widespread recognition in the late eighties when McIntosh started writing about it. In 1988, she wrote a paper called “White Privilege and Male Privilege: A Personal Account of Coming to See Correspondences Through Work in Women’s Studies,” which contained forty-six examples of white privilege. Those examples have since been read by countless school children and college students.

Dr. McIntosh directs the Gender, Race, and Inclusive Education Project, which provides workshops on privilege systems, feelings of fraudulence, and diversifying workplaces, curricula, and teaching methods. She has given talks about privilege to groups such as the American Society for Engineering Education, the House of Bishops of the Episcopal Church, the Ontario Nurses Association, and NASA’s Goddard Space Center. She is also the former associate director of the Wellesley Centers for Women and founder of the National SEED Project on Inclusive Curriculum (Seeking Educational Equity & Diversity).

Dr. McIntosh has taught English, American Studies, and Women's Studies at the Brearley School, Harvard University, Trinity College (Washington, D.C.), Durham University (England), and Wellesley College. She attended Radcliffe and holds a PhD in English from Harvard.
