Women’s Ways of Knowing: The Development of Self, Voice and Mind
Tuesday, October 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until Wednesday, November 3
How do we know what we know? How does our background and training influence our ability to recognize the truth? What unique factors influence women’s relationship to knowledge? How can women move from being silenced or relying on the opinions of others to a dynamic ability to reason critically while retaining a strong sense of one’s own intuitive knowing?
In this 5-week class, we will read and discuss the ground-breaking work Women’s Ways of Knowing: The Development of Self, Voice, and Mind by Mary Field Belenky, Blythe McVicker Clinchy, Nancy Rule Goldberg, and Jill Mattuck Tarule. You can find this book in many used book venues, or at the library. Currently, all sessions planned to be via Zoom.
