Join the Center for Racial Justice and the Institute for Research on Women & Gender (IRWG) in welcoming Dr. Moya Z. Bailey, Associate Professor at Northwestern University, founder of the Digital Apothecary, and co-founder of the Black Feminist Health Science Studies Collective for a workshop on misogynoir in education. This workshop invites participants to identify where misogynoir exists in their lives and begin the long processual work of learning how to uproot it. By the end of the workshop participants should be able to identify misogynoir, intervene when appropriate to stop misogynoir, and imagine new ways of relating to those who experience misogynoir.

Misogynoir is a term referring to misogyny directed towards Black women where race and gender both play a role. The term was coined by Dr. Moya Bailey in 2008 to address misogyny directed toward Black transgender and cisgender women in American visual and popular culture.

This event is part of the CRJ's winter 2024 Racial Justice in Practice workshop series and is free and open to all.
