Hijab Day at Fairfield University

Fairfield University’s Muslim Student Association has planned a series of events in recognition of “Islam Awareness Week,” taking place from Monday, April 7 to Friday, April 11, 2014. The endeavor speaks to the University’s value of diversity on campus and its ongoing efforts to attend to the spiritual needs of its non-Catholic students by way of providing collaborations beyond the Catholic and Jesuit tradition.

The Muslim Student Association has asked us to invite women involved in WGSS to participate in Hijab Day on Wednesday. Women interested in participating can meet at the BCC Information Desk between 10am and 12pm; please bring a scarf.  The group members will help put the scarfs on. Participants then proceed to wear it of the rest of the day and reconvene again at 5:30pm in BCC 206 for a reflection and dinner.

For more information about all this week’s events, please visit: http://www.fairfield.edu/lassochannel/press/pr_index/index.lasso?id=4040

Obama Launching New Initiative To Tackle College Sexual Assault Epidemic

Obama Launching New Initiative To Tackle College Sexual Assault Epidemic

By NEDRA PICKLER 01/22/14 08:20 AM ET EST AP

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is launching an initiative to combat sexual assault, particularly on college campuses, turning the spotlight on a problem that has devastated millions of Americans yet rarely receives such White House attention.

Obama planned to sign a presidential memorandum Wednesday creating a task force to protect students from sexual assault, with a new White House report declaring that no one in America is more at risk of being raped or assaulted than college women. The report, “Rape and Sexual Assault: A Renewed Call to Action,” says that 1 in 5 women have been sexually assaulted at college but that only 12 percent of student victims report the assault.

The report was compiled by the White House Council on Women and Girls and was being released Wednesday, but the White House provided an advance copy to The Associated Press. It says nearly 22 million American women and 1.6 million men have been raped in their lifetimes, with victims more likely to suffer from depression, substance abuse and a wide range of physical ailments, including chronic pain and diabetes.

The report says rape’s prevalence is highest at college, fueled by drinking and drug use that can incapacitate victims. Obama is giving the task force of administration officials 90 days to come up with recommendations for colleges to prevent and respond to sexual assault, increase public awareness of each school’s track record and enhance coordination among federal agencies to hold schools accountable if they don’t confront the problem.

Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, chair of the Council on Women and Girls, said men must be involved to combat the problem and the president wants to lead a cultural shift of men speaking out. “The president is committed to solving this problem, not just as president of the United States, but as a father of two girls” who will soon be heading to college, Jarrett said in an interview.

The report also declares that the criminal justice response to sexual assault is too often inadequate and lays out a goal of increasing arrest, prosecution and conviction rates without any specific targets. The report blames police bias and a lack of training to investigate and prosecute sex crimes for low arrest rates and says the federal government should promote training and help police increase testing of DNA evidence collected from victims.

The report mentions the wave of sexual assault in the military — Obama last month gave the Pentagon a year to better prevent and respond to the crime within its ranks or face further reforms. White House officials say they want to set the example by turning around the sexual assault epidemic in the military.

Stop Kiss presented by Theatre Fairfield

Come out to support Theatre Fairfield and enjoy a wonderful play.  December 4-7 & December 7-8

“Sara and Callie are walking through New York City’s West Village very late at night, when they share their first kiss. This leads to a vicious attack by an angry bystander, in which Sara is horribly injured. She falls into a coma, which becomes one of the major subjects of the play. George, Callie’s good friend, tries to help with the situation, but there is little he can do. Peter, Sara’s ex-boyfriend from St. Louis, comes to help nurse her back to health. Throughout Stop Kiss, relationships are explored, formed, and even ended. Diana Son elaborates on the depths of human emotion and compassion in this play.”

Mark your calendars – Nov 19 – “Buying the Field: Women Religious in a Renewing Church”

Mark your calendars for this important lecture on women and the Catholic Church

The 20th Annual Christopher F. Mooney, S.J. Lecture in Theology, Religion, & Society

Tuesday, November 19  8:00 p.m.

Dolan School of Business Dining Room

Sandra Schneiders, I.H.M. will deliver the lecture entitled, “Buying the Field: Women Religious in a Renewing Church.” According to Schneiders, the lecture “will address an issue which has been at the center of the renewal of women’s Religious Life since the Council, has received enthusiastic endorsement from a large segment of the laity while raising serious concerns among or even scandalizing some others, and has been the object of Vatican suspicion and even public confrontation of U.S. Religious and their leaders. The issue is the “separation from the world” or even “rejection of the world” that had, for centuries, been a virtual definition of Religious Life in contrast to “ordinary” lay life. This lecture will attempt to shed some light on the repercussions for Religious and their life of the “turn to the world” which the Church embraced at the Council and which Religious have made central to their self-understanding and ministerial commitment over the past 50 years.”

Gender-Neutral Housing Sparks Campus Debates

101613-bu-600-1381945568An interesting article about gender-neutral housing at U.S. universities:

Gender-Neutral Housing Sparks Campus Debates: Boston University offers new housing options for students, but a similar plan stalls in North Carolina

OCTOBER 16, 2013

This August, Boston University announced that it would begin offering gender-neutral housing options for students. Under the new policy, upper-class students in select BU housing can now select their roommates regardless of gender. The decision made BU the latest of nearly 100 American schools that have diversified their housing options in response to students who demand recognition of LGBTQ individuals’ safety concerns.

The push for gender-neutral housing at Boston University began last November. “In my short time at BU, I have met so many people who have been uncomfortable with their housing situations,” says Nai Collymore-Henry, vice president of the student group Gender Neutral BU. “I’ve met people who’ve been ostracized by peers and made to feel worthless because of their gender identities. That’s not OK.” In December, over 50 students participated in a sit-in at President Robert A. Brown’s office after students were told offering gender-neutral housing was not a priority. Students also showed broad-based support through a Tumblr photo campaign started by Gender Neutral BU.

Read Our Feature on the Hidden War Against Gay Teens

Other schools have successfully offered gender-neutral housing for years. Columbia University introduced what it calls Open Housing in 2011. “It grew out of a concern for individuals who may have felt uncomfortable under the then-current housing requirement to select a same-sex roommate,” says Alycen Ashburn, a student affairs spokesperson at the university. In spring 2012, Columbia extended the Open Housing option to all upperclass students, following the recommendations of a task force including staff and students.

But at many schools, gender-neutral housing remains a controversial issue. This semester, UNC-Chapel Hill has seen a heated debate following its Board of Governors’ decision to cancel a gender-neutral housing option that had already been approved. “[Gender-neutral housing] had support from UNC,” says Hayley Fowler, a student and reporter for the Daily Tar Heel. “Student government backed [the plan], and the Board of Trustees approved the decision. The student activists I spoke with were upset with the Board of Governors for overturning a decision that they felt was so clearly wanted and accepted here on campus.”

Rick Bradley, UNC-Chapel Hill’s associate director of housing and residential education, says he hopes that continued discussion will shift the Board of Governors’ views. “I suspect that if you talk to Board of Governors members, their reason for denying this is probably not accurate to the reasons the students are looking forward to it,” Bradley says.  He notes that contrary to what some opponents have suggested, taxpayer dollars would not be involved in a move to gender-neutral housing, and no one would be forced to participate in the opt-in program.

At schools like UNC-Chapel Hill and Boston University, what was once a conversation within the LGBTQ community has broadened to the entire student body. And the fight isn’t over. “Our mission is to provide resources to BU students about gender,” says Collymore-Henry. “We also intend to push for more gender-neutral facilities on BU’s campus.”

Where Science is Cool: Fairfield University BASE (Broadening Access to Science Education) Camp Program

Twenty-three high school girls dove into research this summer at a unique camp exploring an array of issues, from how oceans move to leukemia cell growth to troublesome marine ‘invasions’ in the Long Island Sound.

 

It all took place at Fairfield University’s BASE Camp, a two-week, residential camp designed to engage young women in hands-on, research-based experiences in the natural sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Now in its sixth year, BASE (Broadening Access to Science Education) Camp is a program free to students from Bridgeport, Connecticut, schools.

 

Amanda Harper-Leatherman, Ph.D., associate professor of chemistry and camp director, said the overall goal is to excite and inform female students about the promise of science. “The program specifically targets young women, based on the overall disproportional under representation of women in science, math, and engineering careers in general,” Dr. Harper-Leatherman continued. “It’s part of an effort to increase interest in the pursuit of STEM and health careers after college.”

 

The camp also speaks to Fairfield University’s growing institutional commitment to promoting women in science. Serving as female scientist role models were faculty and undergraduates from Fairfield’s College of Arts & Sciences and School of Engineering.

 

Shelley A. Phelan, Ph.D., professor of biology and the Elizabeth DeCamp McInerney Chair of Health Sciences at Fairfield, started the program “because students from underfunded, inner city schools are at a major disadvantage in pursuing careers in science, given their often-limited science resources in high school, and the level of experience and aptitude typically required of science majors in the very first year of college. By the end of the first college years, many interested students leave the major – not because they can’t do it, but because they were behind right from the start.”

 

The camp, including meals and lodging, comes at no cost to students, thanks to a grant Dr. Phelan received from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparity Populations, part of the National Institutes of Health.

 

This year was the first that engineering was taught.

 

“Some campers had never heard of engineering,” said Shanon Reckinger, Ph.D., assistant professor of mechanical engineering. As the Clare Boothe Luce Professor at Fairfield, Dr. Reckinger researches ocean modeling, one way to understand why climate is changing. Three of the students were studying her work this summer. Undergraduates Katherine Pitz and Blanca Aca assisted.

 

“Do you guys want to talk about gravity waves, and the sun and the moon at all?” inquired Pitz, a mechanical engineering major.

 

The answer was a unanimous yes.

 

For Bianca Colon-Hernandez, learning about engineering seemed a logical move because she’s curious about architectural design. And then there’s the fun part of meeting other kids with the same interests. “I don’t talk about science much at my high school with other girls,” noted the soon-to-be junior at Bullard-Havens Technical High School. “But here I’ve been talking about it with everyone.”

 

For Veona Lanham, 15, getting to know Dr. Reckinger and the BASE Camp experience has made her realize that she would like to major in mechanical engineering. “I want to come here,” said the Bullard-Havens student.

 

Several said that living in a campus residence hall made them look forward to going away to college. “I’m kind of getting the green light to go to college,” said Shante Miller, a soon-to-be senior at Bassick High School who hopes to become a medical examiner.

 

Dr. Reckinger observed, “They really like explaining what they’ve learned to other campers.”

 

This was music to Dr. Harper-Leatherman’s ears. “Engineering definitely does have fewer female than male undergraduate students nationwide, so it is important to encourage high school girls into this field,” she explained.

 

To Dr. Phelan, a molecular cell biologist who has been awarded grants to study peroxiredoxins in breast cancer, BASE Camp is an essential annual event. Her hope is that it will inspire other young women “to pursue science and health career paths that will address public health issues.”

 

“We have seen so many bright young women motivated by the program, and many already declared science majors in universities – including our own,” she said. “We hope we can continue to inspire young women from our neighboring Bridgeport community for years to come.”

“Women as Celebrants and Interpreters of Catholic Liturgy: From Sacrosanctum Concilium to Cyberspace.”

pr_tberger13Mark your calendars, this upcoming event may be of interest to our WGSS students!

On Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 7:30 p.m., prominent theologian Teresa Berger will deliver Fairfield University’s 13th annual Anne Drummey O’Callaghan Lecture on Women in the Church – a free and public event held in memory of a Norwalk, Connecticut woman who was a lay minister in area Catholic parishes.

Dr. Berger, professor of Liturgical Studies at Yale Divinity School, will give a talk entitled – “Women as Celebrants and Interpreters of Catholic Liturgy: From Sacrosanctum Concilium to Cyberspace.” Taking place at the Quick Center for the Arts, the event is co-sponsored by the O’Callaghan Family, Fairfield University’s Department of Religious Studies and the Center for Catholic Studies.

“This presentation will map the many ways in which both women’s lives and Catholic liturgy have changed significantly over the last fifty years,” said Dr. Berger, whose most recent book is “Gender Differences and the Making of Liturgical History” (Ashgate: Liturgy, Worship and Society, 2011). “It will highlight vibrant gains in these changes as well as some quite remarkable losses. Throughout, we will attend to the immense diversity of women’s voices as they have emerged and made themselves heard with regard to Catholic liturgy.”

Ella T. Grasso Leadership in Action Grant Program Application Due October 1, 2013!

 

Calling all students!  The Ella T. Grasso Leadership in Action grant funds young women enrolled full-time in CT colleges & universities who make a difference in their communities.  Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply – the application is due October 1, 2013.  Please read below for more information directly from the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame website.  For more information, please visit http://www.cwhf.org/educational-resources/ella-grasso-leadership-grant .  

Ella T. Grasso Leadership in Action Grant Program

 

In 2011, the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame launched the Ella T. Grasso Leadership in Action Grant Program, designed to honor the late Governor Ella Tambussi Grasso and her lifetime of public service and civic engagement. Believing that there is no better way to learn leadership skills than by developing and implementing a project plan and also that young people have the potential to find creative new ways to address community issues and problems, we strive to encourage and applaud their ingenuity. Our goal is to provide opportunities for college students to have real-world leadership-in-training experiences that foster real social change. Grant recipients will design and implement a community action project from start to finish. A faculty advisor/sponsor’s involvement is required, but it is the student who will develop the specifics of the project, outline goals and objectives for its outcomes, put together a plan for its implementation, create budgets and timelines, follow through with the project’s implementation, and report on successes, failures, and the true impact of the project on the community.

 

Grant Details

 

Grant(s) will be awarded each fall to young women enrolled at Connecticut colleges or universities to fund or partially fund community action or public service projects. The project must be completed within one year following the grant award. Deadline for submission of applications: October 1.

 

Eligibility

 

Young women entering their junior or senior year at a Connecticut college or university are eligible to apply. Second-year students enrolled at two-year community colleges are also eligible. Students enrolled in a graduate program are also eligible to apply. Applicants intending to carry out a community action project in Connecticut during the grant period are eligible to apply for the grant. Applicants are eligible regardless of their primary area of study.

 

What kinds of projects are eligible?

 

Any community action, community service, or community outreach project is eligible for consideration. Possible examples include educational programs in the community or on the campus; programs affiliated with a community service/non-profit organization (e.g. women’s shelter, crisis pregnancy center, etc.); literacy projects; summer projects with elementary/middle/high school age students, etc.; public service projects raising awareness for political issues; field studies (for academic credit or otherwise) focusing on an issue affecting the community. Preference will be given to projects focusing on serving women or raising awareness of women’s issues.

Interesting Read: “The On-the-Ground Reality of Women Leaders”

little-8-women-300x239After celebrating Women’s History Month in March, it is wise to recognize that women are still on unequal footing in the workplace.  Women have only been allowed in the two-year MBA Program at Harvard Business School for 50 years.

A recent conference at Harvard Business School addressed the on-the-ground reality of women leaders 50 years after the first women were admitted to the School’s two-year MBA Program. And the reality is that women leaders are stuck—for example, women make up less than 5 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs.  Check out Forbes for the full article: http://www.forbes.com/sites/hbsworkingknowledge/2013/04/17/the-on-the-ground-reality-of-women-leaders/ .
