    • Everyone

    Women 100, a program of Vision 2020, is hosting "Seat at the Table," an exhibition that commemorates the 19th Amendment — establishing women’s right to vote — and asks 100 years later, “Where are we now?” Visitors will experience the current status of gender equality in the U.S. through 3D infographic furniture.

    "Seat at the Table" is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and will reopen April 1, 2021. A virtual tour and the multimedia segment of the exhibition are still available. In addition, an educator's guide is available for download for teachers, youth leaders and parents.

    When the Kimmel Center reopens, "Seat at the Table" will be presented in the lobby daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., through September 2021.

  • Pennoni Panels: Let's Talk About Sex ... Work

    Thursday, April 15, 2021

    3:30 PM-5:00 PM

    on Zoom at: https://drexel.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_9k8nNzKiQYqa5HOdHMO6VA

    • Everyone

    A TikTok trend featuring the song lyric “Nobody asks you questions when you say you’re an accountant” featured users singing the song with descriptions about keeping their sex work, and their income from it, secret from their families and friends. Despite there being a substantial market for sex work, the stigma around those offering and consuming services remains potent. What constitutes sex work? Why does labor around sexual pleasure remain taboo? What are the lines between agency and exploitation in sex work (and work in general)? The panel seeks to tackle the tension surrounding bodies and sex; power and labor; pleasure and shame.

  • Standing in Solidarity: A Frank Conversation About Anti-Asian Hate Crimes

    Friday, April 16, 2021

    11:00 AM-12:00 PM

    Virtual (Zoom)

    • Everyone

    In this panel discussion, we will address the rise of anti-Asian hate crimes through a conversation grounded in the experiences of Asian and Asian-American students, faculty, and professional staff members in the Drexel community. In addition to learning from the experiences of our panelists, we will also explore the history of anti-Asian bias and violence in the United States.

    The event will include a brief overview defining key terms, specifying the Asian and Asian-American groups that are impacted by the recent rise in violence, and summarizing the history of anti-Asian violence in the United States. This will be followed by the panel discussion framed around troubling issues like the "model minority" myth, microaggressions, objectification of Asian women, and cultural and generational nuances. Strategies and resources for allyship and how to get involved will be provided.

    Rebecca Clothey, PhD, Associate Professor and Director of the Asian Studies minor program, will kick off the discussion, which will be wrapped up by Kimberly Gholston, Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer at Drexel University.
