No comments

Amy Hudock, LM's CEO and Stephanie Hunt, LM's column Editor, participated in a panel called, "Feminist Parenting" for the Women and Gender studies program at the College of Charleston. Under the direction of Dr. Alison Piepmeier, the Women and Gender studies program offers, Third Thursdays, a monthly series of informal, conversational salons.

Faculty, staff, and students from the College of Charleston were invited to join with members of the Charleston community to discuss feminism, faculty research, and what Women's and Gender Studies actually involves.

This gathering featured a panel of feminist moms and dads-- Brian McGee, Brian McCann, Stephanie Hunt, and Amy Hudock--who discussed their approach to parenting and the challenges and rewards it brings.
