THE FIRST SEX & THE AMAZON XOCIETY
First Annual Conference on
Internalized Sexism &
Female Aggression Against Other Women
If you enjoyed our last show, February 6th, with research psychologist Dr. Kris Anderson discussing the issue of internalized sexism and female agression against other women, but thought we had some unfinished business, well you're right! We did an incredible job of covering a lot of territory, but we couldn't get to everything.
So The Amazon Xociety is launching the First Annual Conference on Internalized Sexism.
We are building upon our past efforts as we develop an annual conference on internalized sexism examining how women internalize their oppression (negating/accepting) and female aggression against other women. We are committed to facilitating this annual conference for the next ten years.
AN OFFER TO YOU: If you have an interest in helping to develop such a conference by serving on our on-going organizing committee, please contact us at Strongflower@xociety.org
