Mariame Kaba, educator, organizer, curator & Founder & Director of Project NIA & Co-founder of Survived & Punished

Womxn challenges the prevailing patriarchal belief that women are a subset of men and the lack of intersectionality on traditional feminist movements and discourse around “women’s issues.” At the height of mass incarceration, where approximately 2.3 million individuals are incarcerated, the conversation has been centered around the impact on men of color. Although that is a crucial conversation to have, it is important to discuss the rapid rate at which womxn are being incarcerated and marginalized as well.

Through a series of conversations, we will challenge the notion of criminalization through an intersectional lens. We will discuss the impact mass incarceration has had on womxn, but also broaden the conversation of criminalization to include the different ways womxn identities are oppressed.

Presented by the NYU Students for Criminal Justice Reform and Wagner Women’s Caucus, & co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality.
