The IFLS Feminist Friday speakers series began in 2003-2004.
Feminist Fridays bring together students and faculty from a range of departments to hear presentations on the work of our colleagues.
We usually include commentary from another faculty member, and we always have time for audience discussion and snacks afterwards.
Over the years, this series has hosted an impressive number of speakers. Here are some highlights from the past decade.
