FoodSpark #33: Womanism v. Feminism III

  • Yeyo Arts 2907 South Jefferson Avenue St. Louis, MO, 63118 (map)

It's Women's History Month and we're bringing back our Womanism v. Feminism conversation for the third year in a row!

Join us for a rich discussion on the historical and present-day differences between feminism and womanism. We hope to include a discussion around feminism, white feminism, and intersectionality in regards to the many women's marches earlier this year. 

Coined by Alice Walker, the term Womanism is deeply rooted in reversing racial and gender-based oppression of women of color—particularly black women— and looks heavily at the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and class in recognizing the contributions of women in society. 

This Month's Culinary Theme: Layers

Since womxn are multi-faceted, multi-layered humans with many intersecting identities, the theme for this month is LAYERS! Dishes could include tacos, bean dips, sandwiches, lasagnas, baklava, casseroles, salads, trifles, layer cakes, oreos, ice cream sandwiches, yogurt parfaits, quesadillas, and more!
