Feminst Fridays

Feminist Fridays are regularly scheduled conversation hours in the Sloss House dedicated to raising awareness and engaging dialogue around a broad spectrum of issues through a feminist lens. Discussion topics are chosen by presenters who facilitate the dialogue and inform the audience about their topic. Feminist Fridays are led by and open to students, staff, faculty, and community members. If you are interested in presenting or reccomending a presenter for Feminist Friday the Sloss Center at slosscenter@iastate.edu


The Feminist Fridays speaker series is on a break during Fall 2022 but plans to return in Spring 2023. Below is a sample of previous talks and topics. To propose a speaker or topic for Spring 2023, please email slosscenter@iastate.edu.
