University Announces Feminism Conference Featuring 11 Men and One Woman - Broadly
When the humanities department of National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) posted pink publicity flyers advertising the lineup for a feminism conference, it didn’t take long before people sat up and took notice. Held at the university’s Mexico City campus, the conference featured a panel discussion on feminism with 11 participants—all of them male.
The conference was hosted by Marta Lamas, a noted Mexican feminist who edits prominent Latin American journal Debate Feminist. She planned to interview 11 men for the event, which was called “Marta Lamas in dialogue with XY” (XY is the symbol for the male chromosome). According to the flyer, topics up for discussion included “feminism and rights” and “feminism and the market.”
