  • Oklahoma Contemporary (map)

Women Lead Oklahoma is honored to host Rachel Cargle in Oklahoma for an exclusive presentation of her Unpacking White Feminism lecture.

This lecture explores the history of feminism through the lens of race. Unpacking the problematic effects that white-centered activism has had on the past and present of the feminist movement and our collective mission. An opportunity for all self-proclaimed feminists to learn, digest and take actions toward a more inclusive feminism.

An activist and writer, Rachel has developed a passionate community of over 20 thousand people who learn from her work. Currently living in NYC, Rachel is a student at Columbia University where she studies anthropology and women's studies. Rachel serves as a co-chair for the young professional's board at The Ms. Foundation For Women and is the founder and editor of the State Of The Woman Newsletter. She is also one half of The Ripple, an activist collective founded after the 2016 election giving women a launching pad to make ripples in their community.

This event coincides with the final weekend of Oklahoma Contemporary's exhibition, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh: Oklahoma is Black. Fazlalizadeh has achieved international recognition for her artwork of portraits and words that give voices to people and communities that are often marginalized, including women, people of color and the LGBTQ community. Lecture attendees are encouraged to arrive early and visit this installation.
