think & DRINK with OHC and discuss gender equality

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Do we live in a “post-feminist society”? Do glass ceilings still loom over women in the workplace? How equal are men and women, and does it matter?

The Oklahoma Humanities Council will address these and other questions about gender equality at our next think & DRINK event at Fassler Hall OKC, 421 NW 10th St., on Friday, June 26, at 7:00 pm. Our think & DRINK event is free and open to the public, so while the entry fee is on us, drinks are on you!

think & DRINK is a fun and informal conversation series in local pubs on provocative topics and new ideas. The June 26 event will feature a brief introduction of the topic of gender equality before audience members vote for the side of the argument they support. Two engaging panelists will then present their sides of the issue, and audience members will join in the conversation before a final vote at the end of the evening.

The two speakers presenting contrasting view of gender equality will be Dr. Roksana Alavi, professor at the University of Oklahoma, and Andrea Mason, owner of barre3 studios in Edmond, Midtown OKC, Oklahoma City, and Tulsa.

Dr. Alavi teaches in the Women and Gender Studies Program and is involved in OU’s Center for Social Justice. Her research focuses on gender, race, stereotyping, and oppression, and she has recently taught and researched issues of local and global human trafficking. Mrs. Mason’s work with her husband Desmond as co-owner of barre3 focuses on improving the health and lives of Oklahomans. Barre3 combines ballet, yoga, and Pilates to strengthen, align, and balance the body.

Audience members at think & DRINK events are invited to think and talk together, reflecting the Oklahoma Humanities Council's emphasis on infusing important public conversations with critical thinking and fresh ideas.
