It’s a call for gender equality and a list of changes that need to take place for gender equality to take shape. Local Chicago writer, Anne Elizabeth Moore, updated the text for today’s standards in 2014. Following the reading, a panel will facilitate a discussion about feminism past, present,and future. Panelists include writer, Anne Elizabeth Moore, UIC PhD candidate Jennifer Ash, and Alice Kim, UIC, Gender and Women Studies.
