Women's Week 2020

This event is part of Women’s Week - an annual, week-long event focused on the issues and challenges faced by those who identify as female. Topics are relevant to today’s socio-economic and political climate, intersectionality, and cultural movements. This year’s Women’s Week theme “Allies in Activism” focuses on the power of Indigenous women activists in and beyond the United States.

While acknowledging colonialism and continued efforts to disenfranchise Indigenous women and their communities, this year’s events celebrate Indigenous knowledge and power. The stories of women from Oohenumpa band of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe; Wayuu who occupy territory split by the Colombia-Venezuela border; and, Indigenous Peoples throughout the Pacific Islands celebrate the power of Indigenous languages and culture, share concrete examples of successful activism in the arenas of self-determination, politics and the law. These women have been unapologetic in their activism and building of institutions and cultural spaces where people might flourish.
