The Guilty Feminist with Kaytee Stewart
1-2 p.m., Faunce Memorial Room
Kaytee Stewart is heavily involved in queer and feminist activism.
She has focused her research on expanding the meaning and application
of feminism in policy (particularly around transgender and
genderqueer, gender-variant inclusivity and fluidity through
disrupting binaried understanding of gender as the predicate for
rights and protections). But beyond her academic focus, she has become
increasingly interested in how we define, police, and judge what can
count as feminism and who can embody, live out, and identify with
feminist ideology. She aims to explore and understand the concept of
feminist guilt, as we navigate a world with complex expectations for
us as gendered people and feminists. Come have lunch and chat with Kaytee!
