202-462-6610Bridge the Gap: Gender Rights / Human Rights, the 2007 GenderYOUTH Leadership Summit is fast approaching. The Summit is an action-oriented, three-day educational gathering of youth and students working to get gender recognized as a fundamental right.
We will be featuring a Gender Theory Institute where you can actively engage your favorite theorists and activists in discussions about gender stereotypes. Panels will address gender and race in hip-hop, the emerging US human rights movements, and the love - hate relationship between American feminism and queer theory.
Attendees can preview ground-breaking new documentaries from Academy Award-winner Debra Chasnoff and Byron Hurt, director of Beyond Beats and Rhymes!
Register for the 2007 GenderYOUTH Leadership Summit and connect with other youth to share ideas, pool resources, and take action!
