#WomenWednesdays highlights Bahamian women and our experiences in The Bahamas, specific to our identities including gender, race, sexuality, age, and ability. Held once per month at minimum, the events will draw women together to have conversations that bring our individual lives into focus while connecting to family, community, and national narratives.
#WomenWednesdays intentionally centers and prioritizes women and girls, and is open to the public through in-person events, livestreams, and social media activity. It is a collaborative effort of Equality Bahamas and the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas to create a safe space for knowledge-building, idea-sharing, critical dialogue, and movement-building.
The Gender Equality panel will kickstart our event series, and lay the foundation for later discussions.
Questions framing the conversation include:
-What is gender equality?
- What is gender equality?
- What does gender equality look like?
- What is the importance of constitutional equality?
- How do religious institutions/leaders/views (not) support gender equality?
- What are current barriers to gender equality? How can we address them?
Our Gender Equality panelists are: Natalie Willis, Cultural Practitioner Alexus D'Marco, Human Rights Defender Carol Misiewicz, Supreme Court Registrar.
