Conference: Reclaiming Our Bodies: Confronting Oppression & Celebrating Ourselves

2012 Theme: Reclaiming Our Bodies: Confronting Oppression & Celebrating Ourselves

No matter where you go, or the body you inhabit your body is supervised, policed, governed, judged, legislated, assumed upon and about. This year’s conference seeks to interrogate expectations, explore solutions and share successful strategies.

Visions in Feminism is a Washington, DC-based collective of people brought together by the common goals of social justice, and feminism. Each year Visions in Feminism seeks to provide a forum for diverse perspectives on feminist praxis. The conference not only sustains a feminist dialogue that will keep the movement relevant, but also hopes to inspire action by those in attendance. This action is intended to bring about the critical changes necessary in destabilizing the institution of patriarchy and other forms of oppression. Visions in Feminism brings together speakers, attendees, and organizers in an attempt to build a larger and stronger feminist community. The Visions in Feminism conference is been co-organized with the Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program at American University.
