Upcoming Lectures


This fall we are presenting an examination of the places we learn the things that make us ourselves:

Learning from Surprising Places

The series culminates in a week in which many women present stories of some of the places they learned from to create a Story Quilt. Can you think of a surprising place that you learned an important lesson that shaped you?

November 16th

My Teachers: Creating a Story Quilt

Lindsa Vallee, moderates as women present brief stories of learning from surprising places. Come, and see the Story Quilt grow! Add your own story to the discussion

The Spring 2018 series carries the simple title

"Exploring ..."

We will turn our attention to a number of topics that excited our curiosity and which, we hope, will whet your appetite for some more thoughtful, original and provocative lectures brought to you by WomenExplore:

We will investigate "White Privilege" and "Gender Bias", find out what "Constellation Work" is, look at the ethics of manipulating DNA, and more.
