After the successful launch of the Gender Studies Institute at Trinity Western University earlier this year, organizers are now offering learners the opportunity to partake in what may be Canada's first Gender Café. Patterned after popular Philosophy Cafés, the Gender Café invites students, faculty and the public to discuss issues of gender, particular to a gender-related book, in a casual and friendly café environment.
The third Gender Café will be led by Dr. Allyson Jule, Associate Professor of Education, TWU, and will focus on The Golden Notebook (1962) by Doris Lessing.
