Racism, Sexism & the 2008 Elections

I would so be at this but I'll be out of town. On a related note: HuffPo has this piece on if/how feminism informs the decisions of women superdelegates.

Women of Color Caucus Presents

Racism, Sexism & the 2008 Elections

A Consciousness-Raising for Women of Color

Did you vote in the primary? Why or Why not?

Did the race or gender of the candidates factor into your decision?
When: Thursday, April 10, 2008, 6:30-8:30
Where: Joseph S. Murphy Institute / CUNY
25 W. 43rd St., 18th floor (bet. 5th & 6th Ave.)

Join us to compare and analyze our experiences with voting in the 2008 primary. This meeting is open to women of color.

The Women of Color Caucus (WOCC) is an organizing think tank composed of women of color associated with Redstockings of the Women's Liberation Movement and (Florida) Gainesville Women's Liberation. We believe that women of color involved in women's liberation must also meet separately in order to address problems specifically affecting women of color.
