Kent State’s Women’s Center Hosts Feminist Fridays

The Kent State University Women’s Center will continue its monthly Feminist Fridays (#KSUFeministFridays) discussion on Friday, Nov. 20, from noon-1 p.m. at the Women's Center on the Kent Campus. During this conversation, lecturer Denise Harrison from the Department of Pan-African Studies will explore feminisms, food and finances. According to the National Women’s Law Center, more than one in seven women and more than one in five children lived in poverty in 2014. More than half of all poor children lived in families headed by women. The discussion will explore these disparities in the U.S. as well as globally and discuss actions that we can take as a community.
