“The Brown University Women Writers Project is a long-term research project devoted to early modern women’s writing and electronic text encoding. Our goal is to bring texts by pre-Victorian women writers out of the archive and make them accessible to a wide audience of teachers, students, scholars, and the general reader. We support research on women’s writing, text encoding, and the role of electronic texts in teaching and scholarship.”

Half the Sky Movement

“Half the Sky lays out an agenda for the world’s women and three major abuses: sex trafficking and forced prostitution; gender-based violence including honor killings and mass rape; maternal mortality, which needlessly claims one woman a minute. We know there are many worthy causes competing for attention in the world. We focus on this one because this kind of oppression feels transcendent, and so does the opportunity. Outsiders can truly make a difference.” (from the website).  Also a book by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn: Half the Sky.

BBRG PRESENTS: Annual Keynote Talk – Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak Situating Feminism

Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, University Professor and Director of the Center for Comparative Literature and Society, Columbia University—This presentation will attempt to situate feminism geographically, in terms of the triumph of the Euro-specific (even Anglo-specific) model, in terms of the history of both of Marxism and Capitalism. It will trace feminisms itinerary through both coloniality and globalization. It will also attempt to situate feminism historically in terms of the provenance of what we at radical U.S. universities call feminism and see how it reflects on the development of mobility among women in terms of not only capital but also the great engines of world governance.  Organized by: The Beatrice Bain Research Group
