After our workshop, check out: MUJERES REVOLUCIONARIAS at 5:00pm!

“We write our story every day that we educate ourselves, every time we go to work, and the times we have become the backbone of our familia and comunidad. A mujer is much more than a mother, a daughter and a wife. She is strength, she is knowledge, she is change! Join the Chicana/o Latina/o Student Resource Center and our affiliated clubs and organizations as we celebrate all the mujeres revolucionarias who have planted the seeds that we continue to cultivate. “

Ovarian Psycos Present: The Tender Gender Bender Ride! This Sunday, November 24th!

Untitled

Is gender just a matter of being male and female? Is gender only about the way you look or dress? Is it about how you see yourself and how it affects you? Is it socially constructed by the capitalist system to create a gender hierarchy? 

Join Las Ovarios del Barrio this month as we explore these questions and more!!!

During this months all gender ride the Ovarian Psycos invite you to come and explore the spectrum of gender. We will touch on the basics of:

*gender identity
* gender as a social construction
*patriarchy & colonialism as they relate to gender politics
*how to be an ally to folx with who’s identity lies outside the gender binary (societies definitions of masculine & feminine)

This workshop will be mostly activity and discussion based. We want to create a safe space for folx to share and learn. Therefore, we encourage everyone to come with an open heart and open mind. Bigotry and oppression will not be tolerated.
