Oct. 16: ENGAGE FOR CHANGE Journal Submission Deadline
Call for Papers on GENDER JUSTICE
What is gender justice? Who is affected by gender inequalities? While some legislative changes (Equality Act, Paycheck Fairness Act) and social movements (#MeToo, He for She, Times Up) are happening on a national scale, how does PA fare with respect to gender rights? Is there more PA could be doing? How have PA citizens been impacted by unequal pay, sexual harassment, sexual discrimination, gender violence, domestic violence, family leave, LGBTQ+ issues, transgender and reproductive rights and in what contexts (workplaces, education, healthcare, sports, politics, entertainment)? What are ways gender inequality has affected you personally?
The Engage for Change journal accepts submissions from undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, and community members (collaborative submissions are encouraged) for the 2022-2023 issue. We accept a diverse range of articles, from research articles to personal perspectives, creative pieces, and reviews.
October 26th: DVS Survivor Speak Out
Domestic Violence Survivors tell their stories publicly during Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
We’re going back in person to bear witness to the stories and experiences of our neighbors who have survived domestic abuse and are thriving in our community. They want us to know about their experiences in an effort to advocate for change and with hope that others will avoid becoming victims themselves by learning from the life lessons they share.
October 27: CURED
Five years in the making, CURED illuminates a pivotal yet largely unknown chapter in the struggle for LGBTQ equality: the campaign that led the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to remove homosexuality from its manual of mental illnesses.
