The 5th National Conference on Gender and 10th National Gender Lobby Day will be held this year from May 20-22, 2005 at the Doubletree Hotel Crystal City in Washington, DC. The conference is a three-day gathering of parents, youth, activists and academics focused on gender politics, strategy, and policy and encourages an understanding of the connections between gender and race, class, sexual orientation, and disability. Keynote addresses will be provided by Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, a pioneer in the field of queer theory; Carol Evans, CEO and President of Working Mother magazine; and Anne Fausto-Sterling, Professor of Biology and Gender Studies. Other speakers include former NFL player, Don McPherson and former President of the National Organization for Women, Patricia Ireland and many more!
The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition works to end discrimination and violence caused by gender stereotypes. The organization’s goals of safer environments for children, safer schools for youth, safer communities, and fairer workplaces are met through programs in Public Education, the GenderYOUTH Network, the Workplace Fairness project, and a new network of parents and practitioners to be launched at this year’s conference, Children As They Are.
