Transnational Reflections On 50 Years of Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN)

April 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

RSVP uoft.me/wgsi50-intl

Join us for a panel discussion with some of DAWN’s founders and earliest members from Senegal, Barbados, Brazil and Fiji. Visit www.dawnnet.org/about/history to learn more about DAWN’s history.

2024 marks the 40th anniversary of Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN), feminist scholars, researchers and activists who formed a network that centred women living in the Global South. DAWN turned the geographical axis of feminism on its head and insisted on centring questions and perspectives derived from poor women living in the Global South. DAWN’s earliest vocabularies also anticipated the climate crisis we now face. In short, these women offered a holistic approach that simply refused to be domesticated in its feminist reach.

This event is a part of the Women & Gender Studies 50th Anniversary programming taking place over the course of the 2023-2024 academic year. By RSVPing, you are consenting to the WGSI sending you more information about this event once it becomes available. For more information about the WGSI’s history, visit www.wgsi.utoronto.ca | Co-Sponsored by the Dean’s Office, Faculty of Arts and Science; New College; Bissell-Heyd Chair in American Studiesv
