Developing shame resilience makes it easier to deal with this difficult but inevitable emotion, along with jealousy, loss, and fear.

The Guilty Feminist, Kaytee Stewart
1pm @ Faunce Memorial Room
Come have lunch and chat with Kaytee Stewart, who will be facilitating a conversation with students around the idea of “feminist guilt”.
Kaytee Stewart is heavily involved in queer and feminist activism. Her research focus has been on expanding the meaning and application of feminism in policy (particularly around transgender and genderqueer, gender-variant inclusivity and fluidity through disrupting binaried understanding of gender as the predicate for rights and protections) but beyond her academic focus, she has become increasingly interested in how we define, police and judge what can count as feminism and who can embody, live out and identify with feminist ideology. She aims to explore and understand the concept of feminist guilt, as we navigate a world with complex expectations for us as gendered people and feminists.
