The Vivas Las Queremos Project Committee in collaboration with Urdimbres Feminismos Decoloniales y Saberes Nómadas, el Rule Comunidad de Saberes, the Department of Languages and Linguistics, University of Texas El Paso, and the Department of Photography and Imaging, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University is pleased to present a one day virtual forum in which women’s voices from Mexico, the United States, Colombia, Ecuador, and England will come together in a rotating sequence of creative conversations to discuss issues that relate to gender-based violence in its many permutations, including the toxic elements borne by misogyny, domestic abuse, ingrained sexist attitudes, and traditional male-dominant practices. These conversations will not only seek to sharpen definitions of gender-related abuse and violence but will highlight meaningful ways of countering such actions with positive methodologies of redress and remediation.

The forum will be live-streamed, open to all, and free. You may sign up for both.
