10/12/13 - Center-Shift NYC Conference: Affirming Transnational Women's Feminism, Leadership and Sisterhood.

Women are organizing at a historic time where mass uprisings across the globe – from Egypt to Brazil – are taking place. Concurrently, here in the United States, past generations’ of women’s rights are being stripped through right-wing measures; women are at the forefront to defend those rights as well as in leadership of other movements – immigrant rights, prison reform, reproductive and educational justice, anti-war.
