From Women of the Left Bank to the Ya-Yas and the WNBA: Women and the Importance of Female Community
Across disciplines of science, family studies, art, cultural studies, and literature (all periods), we will examine the following questions:
What is a female community?
How are female communities formed and created?
What is the significance of belonging to a female community?
How do female communities function in texts and the media?
Are there relationships between community and ethnicity?
What if a woman does not have access to a female community?
Why and how should we promote the concept of female community?
