Our Bodies, Our Earth: Voice, Violence, and Peacemaking




Join us for the 2018 4W Summit on Women, Gender and Well-being, with the theme of  Our Bodies, Our Earth: Voice, Violence, and Peacemaking.

We are bringing together prominent global leaders, national and international scholars, practitioners, students, artists, and community members to share information and experiences and build ongoing networks around timely challenges related to women and well-being.

Plan to join participants from  across the disciplines for a program of speakers and presenters addressing feminist perspectives on women, gender and voice in research, scholarship, program development, pedagogy, curriculum, creative work, and/or community activism. Presenters have been encouraged to draw upon the range of perspectives on gender and social justice to examine the present and future of well-being and empowerment for women, girls and their families, in Wisconsin and the world.

The Summit will begin Thursday, April 12, 2018 at 4:00 with the Soffa Keynote Lecture by May Sabe Phyu, Director, Gender Equality Network (GEN). This lecture is a J. Jobe and Marguerite Jacqmin Soffa Lecturesponsored by the Human Rights ProgramThe International Division, and the Global Legal Studies Center. This and the other plenary sessions are free and open to the public. If you are not attending the entire 4W Summit, please register here.
