Intersectional Selves: Writing as Women of Color (High School Students)

Description A one-day workshop Teacher Lucie Pereira For who Open to 12 students, High School Students When Wednesday, March 6 Time 6–8 p.m. Location 826 Valencia Writing Lab


Young women of color balance the complexities of our identities in our daily lives. Many revolutionary feminist voices (think Audre Lorde, bell hooks, Maxine Hong Kingston, Gloria Anzaldua) have been women of color who used writing to reclaim their identities, challenge false narratives, and construct their own stories of what it means to walk in the world as a woman of color. In this workshop, we will discuss questions such as: What is intersectionality? What does it mean to be a young woman of color? How can we express our complex, intersectional identities through writing?
