You might know this year’s Carol Ortman Perkins speaker for her hilarious comedy in over 20 films, including the blockbusters Sister Act and Sister Act 2; Hocus Pocus; Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas; and as the voice of “Peggy Hill” in King of the Hill. But there is much more to this year’s, tenth annual lecturer, Ms. Kathy Najimy. Najimy has been a long time vocal supporter of women’s rights. Speaking out against sexism, racism, and homophobia, she shares an idealism that we are all equal, connected by our sense of common humanity. As the Ms. Magazine Woman of the Year, she has been called a “Social Action Hero”. She has been on the frontlines of progressive causes, and is driven by her own desire to see all living things treated equitably.
A limited number of tickets are available for the VIP reception following the lectuer. They are $25 at the Women's Center CSU 218.

The Clothesline Project (CLP) acts as a vehicle for change and awareness-raising of the widespread, but often secretive problem of violence against women and girls. After t-shirts are decorated, they are hung on a clothesline to be viewed by others, an “airing of” the often hidden problem of domestic and sexual violence. Survivors of sexual and domestic violence and friends and loved ones of victims and survivors will have the opportunity to design a shirt in a safe place to share their experiences, thoughts and feelings. Advocates will be close by throughout the event.
