Three members of the Class of 2023, Chloe Norman (representing the Legal Studies Club), Callie Mitchell (representing the Chaplain's Council), and Madison Winston (representing the Intersectional Feminism Club), represented Woodward at the annual YWCA of Greater Atlanta Conversations on Race and Gender. "Conversations" is an annual event that aims to initiate thought-provoking dialogue and teach attendees skills that will enable them to promote positive change in their communities. This year's theme was, "My Body. My Health. My Rights."
The conversation included a panel discussion with reproductive justice experts Kwajelyn J. Jackson, Executive Director of the Feminist Women's Health Center; Linda Golfer Blount, President and CEO of the Black Women's Health Imperative; and Hedwige Saint Louis, Associate Professor of Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology, Morehouse School of Medicine. The panel was moderated by Dr. Cynthia Neal Spence, the Director of Social Justice Programs and an Associate Professor of Sociology at Spelman College.
The students heard from the panel of experts and conversed with other community members on ways to educate themselves and others about the human rights to maintain personal bodily autonomy, to have or not to have children, and to parent children in safe and sustainable communities. These students will use what they learned to engage in thoughtful, compassionate conversations with the Upper School community to help ensure their rights, and the rights of others, are protected.
