Thank you to everyone who joined the Friends of Women’s Studies for our 19th Annual  Table Talk in support of WGSS!  It was absolutely inspiring to be in the room with so many amazing women — building a sense of community through engaged conversation.

Converse. Share. Learn.

Table Talk is a fascinating combination of conversations over lunch, led by dynamic women of various cultures, professions and experience at each table. Table Talk benefits the Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program and the Carey C. Shuart Women’s Archive and Research Collection at the University of Houston.

The Shuart Women’s Archive collects, preserves and shares the stories of women’s contributions to Texas and Houston. The WGSS Program combines theoretical and empirical studies, to give students the tools to analyze gender dynamics of the past and present to build a fair future.
