This International Women’s Day event, inspired by Penn’s “Year of Games," will highlight the interdisciplinary landscape of women’s health and the challenges to achieving justice. "Gender Games: Strategies for Achieving Justice in Women's Health Worldwide" is a night of celebration, discussion, and networking with health practitioners, policy advocates, and educators working toward justice in women’s health.
Each panelist will focus on the ways women’s health can benefit from a “games approach,” such as developing innovative strategies for success, teamwork toward common goals, and using creative tactics to win. Dr. Felicity Paxton, Penn Women’s Center Director and Lecturer in theAnnenberg School of Communication, will moderate the panel, interweaving the theme of games in a discussion with attendees.
The art and performances will feature artists who express the need for justice in women’s health through their individual art forms.
Partners for this event include several GPA members and others doing important international work in the Philadelphia region:
