“Portrait of the Artist as a Young Woman: Two Views” is the title of the next Feminist Fridays’ talk from 12:15 to 1 p.m. Friday, Dec. 3, in the Luann Dummer Center for Women, Room 103, O’Shaughnessy Educational Center.

Dr. Cheri Shakiban, Math Department, will share the story of Tahireh, The Pure One, a 19th century Iranian poet and religious leader, who was the first woman to unveil publicly. Her views cost her her life at age 36.

Christiane Harrassowitz, Music Department, will discuss Asha Molika Mohamed, possibly one of the most prominent Kenyan musicians today. The strength and self-assurance she demonstrates in her music show a contrast to women’s traditional role in Kenyan society.

This program is subject to change. Final program information will be available by Wednesday, Dec. 1, by calling the center, (651) 962-6119.

The theme for this year’s Feminist Fridays series is “Women Making a Difference,” and the focus of the series is on women around the globe.

All are welcome. Feel free to bring your bag lunch.
