2.9.14 - Women of Color Caucus Consciousness-Raising Meeting

Join the Women of Color Caucus for a Consciousness-Raising meeting on Sunday, Feb. 9 at 3:00 pm to compare and analyze our experiences with beauty standards. We will be meeting in Dauer 215 on University of Florida's campus. (If you are outside of Gainesville, you can participate by conference call.)


We will be answering the following questions:

  • When have you changed/altered your appearance (e.g., straightened your hair, lightened/darkened your skin, shaved, worn make-up, etc.)? Why? What happened? What was the cost to you (money, time, etc.)? What was the benefit?
  • When have you not changed your appearance (e.g., not straightened your hair, not lightened/darkened your skin, not shaved, not worn make-up, etc.)? Why? What happened? What was the cost to you? What was the benefit?

This meeting is open to women of color. Contact us for more information and/or to get the conference call phone line number.
