This Sunday afternoon in Kittery — bring someone 15 years older or younger than yourself!
What does “feminist” mean in 2018? What did it ever mean? How do we relate to each other across generations? This open community discussion will ask all of these questions and hear answers from different perspectives and generations.
Discussion questions will include:
- What does the movement of feminism mean to womxn and advocates across different generations?
- What societal, cultural and familial dynamics are in place when we communicate to each other across generations — specifically when it comes to intergenerational women, such as mothers and daughters?
- How does our culture view and value motherhood?
- Are “millenials” that different from previous generations?
- How does the experience of advocates who have been involved in the movement of feminism and social justice for decades vary from that of younger generations or those just starting to become involved in these movements?
- Rosjke Hasseldine MS MBACP (Accredited), of Mother-Daughter Coaching International, author of The Silent Female Scream and The Mother-Daughter Puzzle, mother-daughter relationship therapist with an international reputation, and speaker at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, NYC, March, 2018.
- Sylvia R. Kennedy MD, Emergency Medicine physician (retired) — was told while in college that she was “too pretty to go to med school,” and went on to become a doctor and a tireless advocate for gender equality over decades of change.
- Menatallah N. Bahnasy (Menat) is a senior at Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire, and will be attending Harvard College next year as a freshman. Through her involvement as the Co-President of the Student Council, a Co-Head of the Democratic Club, a student representative on the Discipline Committee, and the founder of the Exeter Refugee Project, she has explored and learned about the world around her, and has had an exciting time forming her worldview.
