How do you shape a feminist life?

What are the choices we confront about how to do feminist work and make feminist relationships (or not)?

How do you express yourself through work?

If feminism is about how you do your job rather than the job you have, what does that mean for an artist, or for anyone?

Paromita Vohra is an award-winning filmmaker, writer, and media activist based in Mumbai, India. She is Northwestern's 2017-18 Jean Gimbel Lane Global Humanities Initiative Visiting Artist in Residence.

Workshop is free (lunch provided) but registration is required. Please RSVP to

With special thanks to the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures and the Asian Studies Program. The Jean Gimbel Lane Artist in Residence is co-sponsored by the Global Humanities Initiative of the Buffett Institute for Global Studies and the Kaplan Humanities Institute.
