Feministing: Offline and Unfiltered with Jos Truitt
Jos Truitt, Executive Editor of the widely read and highly acclaimed feminist blog Feministing, will be on campus on April 3 for two events that IFC is co-sponsoring with the Center for Writing and Public Discourse (CMC), The Scripps Writing Program, and the Scripps Dean of Faculty’s office. Jos is a transgender writer, consultant, printmaker and activist whose interests include trans reproductive justice, blogging for social justice, campus and community organizing, feminism, and gender, race, and pop culture. She first got involved in organizing when she led a walkout against the Iraq War at her high school. As an undergraduate at Hampshire College, she organized an annual reproductive justice conference there. She has volunteered as an escort at an abortion clinic and has done organizing and hotline work for reproductive rights and justice organizations. She holds an MFA in Printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute, and has shown her work at the Kinsey Institute, the Center for Sex and Culture, SOMArts, the San Francisco Old Mint, Hampshire College Art Gallery, and the Swell Gallery at SFAI. She is currently working on a project about mermaids. Read Jos’ Feministing blog at: http://feministing.com/members/jos/. Jos’ own website is http://jostruitt.com/.
