Public Lecture by Rev. Dr. Angela Yarber-Holy Women Icons

Location: Campus Center 301

The Public is invited to a Free public lecture presented by Rev. Dr. Angela Yarber, Author, Artist and Executive Director of the Holy Women Icons Project.

Title: Holy Women Icons: Honoring Women’s History Month

Abstract: The Holy Women Icons Project seeks to empower marginalized women by telling the stories of revolutionary holy women through art, writing, and special events. Undergirded by an intersectionally ecofeminist philosophy, this event includes a pop-up art show of folk-feminist iconography, a lecture featuring the stories and images of revolutionary women often overlooked throughout history, and a book signing of Holy Women Icons. From Sappho, Perpetua, and Felicity to Pauli Murray and Gloria Anzalduá, celebrate Women’s History Month by exploring the lives, legends, and legacies of revolutionary historical women who have subverted the status quo in art, philosophy, dance, civil rights, religion, and activism.

The event is sponsored by: the Philosophy Department, Hawaiʻi Island Philosophy Club, the Gender and Women's Studies Program and the Women's Center.
