The Inaugural Year: 20th Annual Women's History Conference: Democracy on the Margins: Gender, Citizenship, and the Global Challenge to Democratic Freedoms

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Atrium/Lobby

Open to the public

/ Friday

4:00pm-8:00pm Add to calendar

Events in the past decade seem to indicate that democracy in many parts of the world is in peril. In the United States, voter ID laws and extra legal tactics work to suppress voter turnout and political actors make decisions based on what might effect their re-election rather than what is best for their country. American distrust of government, and a growing sense of white resentment have widened divisions among an already fractured electorate, while racism and xenophobia seem to be growing. Moreover, Russian hackers appear to have weaponized racism in a way that affected the outcome of the US elections.
