Question Bridge: Women’s Voices

International Women’s Day Panel
"Women Firsts”

The purpose of Question Bridge: Women’s Voices is to host an annual, intersectional panel of diverse women on International Women’s Day to have an intergenerational conversation about women’s issues generally, and work and identity issues specifically. This year, the theme of the panel is “Women Firsts.” Panelists will discuss their professional trajectories, including work, life, and identity issues, focusing on what it was like to be “the first” to achieve a certain accomplishment or break through a glass or other kind of ceiling. Our goal is to help educate women about some of the lessons required to trailblaze and persevere through diverse and difficult situations.

This event was sponsored by the Women’s and Gender Studies Program, the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies, in collaboration with the Winthrop Women’s Coalition.
