America In Crisis: Election 2020, Voting and the Intersectionality of Race & Gender
This symposium examines the intersection of race and gender on the political decisions made by citizens and government officials in the United States. The discussion encompasses the (dis)empowerment of minorities and women, the issues confronting them and the power they have to design policy that influences their life choices. As racism and patriarchy manifest in political discourse, the symposium examines the role of women in creating strategies to challenge discrimination.
