Though the rise of the #MeToo movement and the increasing presence of women in the workforce and public spaces reflects a growing consciousness of women as equals, the amount of voices speaking out against pressing issues like sexual harassment, pay inequity, restrictive gender roles, etc. is louder than ever before. What is the state of women’s issues today and how does gender affect aspects of our everyday lives? Please join us for a “The Voice of Women” Civic Dinner event in collaboration with the FIU Honors College and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. The event will be hosted by Isabella (Isa) Marie Garcia, an undergraduate student in the FIU Honors College double majoring in English Literature and Women’s and Gender Studies, and will be held on Thursday, March 7th, 2019 from 1-2pm. If you would like to join in on the pre-discussion lunch, please arrive to Vizcaya Museum and Gardens at 12:30pm. Please bring your own lunch. We hope to see you there!

I'm currently an undergraduate student in the Honors College at Florida International University double majoring in English with a concentration in Literature and Women’s and Gender Studies, and double minoring in French Language and Culture and Art History. I'm heavily interested in work that challenges gender ideals, female sexuality, and brings taboo subjects up to the surface. I hope that my work, whether it be through written, visual, or spoken word, can help challenge even just one individual to see how important intersectionality is within our world and one’s own local community.
