Florida Studio Theatre (FST) presents The Rights of It All, a community conversation presented as part of FST’s Suffragist Project. A Co-presentation of the Boxser Diversity Initiative and FST, this event will examine ways the movements behind women’s suffrage, LGBTQ+ rights, and women’s rights intersect.
This panel discussion will take place on January 7, 2020 in FST’s Gompertz Theatre at 5PM. It is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. For reservations and more information, visit floridastudiotheatre.org.
Honorable Chief Judge Charles E. Williams will moderate the panel, featuring three special guests: Dr. Timothy Patrick McCarthy (Harvard University), Yoleidy Rosario (Ringling College of Art & Design), and Dr. Amy Reid (New College of Florida). McCarthy, Rosario, and Reid will discuss the connections and parallels among three significant social movements from the past century.
“All movements that speak to social justice have a certain commonality,” said Honorable Chief Judge Williams. “History teaches us that these separate movements were built upon common principles, ideas, and sometimes even common barriers.
The fight for the vote by female suffragists inspired future activists who were also dedicated to equality and acceptance. This discussion, led by an outstanding panel of educators and scholars, will explore this history and social dynamics.”
