Inspired by Penn's "Year of Games," International Women's Day 2012  highlights the interdisciplinary landscape of women's health and the challenges to achieving justice. Join us for a night of celebration, discussion, and networking.

The panel includes 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 the Annenberg School of communication, will moderate the panel, interweaving the theme of games in a discussion with attendees.

The art and performances feature artists who express the need for justice in women's health through their individual art forms.

Co-presented by African Studies Center, South Asia Center, Center for South Asian Studies, Middle East Center, Penn Women's Center, Penn Consortium of Undergraduate Women and Excelano at the University of Pennsylvania, and United Nations Association, Women's Caucus for Art, Women's Campaign International, The Anna Crusis Women's Choir, Usiloquy, Tune Up, Women's International League for Peace and Freedom.
