Texas Tech To Host Women In Higher Ed Confab



LUBBOCK, TX - Texas Tech University is set to host the 27th Annual All-University Conference on the Advancement of Women in Higher Education Feb. 3-4 in the Student Union Building (SUB) at Texas Tech.

The Conference titled, “Innovative Voices: Initiatives, Projects and Practices for Empowerment and Gender Equality,” is part of a two-day celebration sponsored by the Women’s Studies Program at Texas Tech. The event will include papers and panel discussions concerning women’s gender and identity issues.

Traveling feminist organizer Shelby Knox will serve on a keynote panel titled, “Forth Wave: (Active)ism in Her(story),” at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 4 in the Matador Room of the SUB.

Knox is best known for her documentary film “The Education of Shelby Knox.” It is Knox’s activist efforts, which she has maintained since graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, that bring her back to Lubbock.

A New York City resident, Knox is currently writing a book about the “forth wave” of feminist activism. She also travels across the country speaking about age-appropriate comprehensive sex education, gay rights and the next generation of feminism. Knox has testified before Congress on abstinence funding in an effort to highlight sexual health awareness.

Knox has appeared on “Today,” “Good Morning America” and “Dr. Phil” to discuss sex education and youth activism. She also has published articles for internet and print media outlets such as: Jezebel, Feministe, RH Reality Check, the Huffington Post, Glamour, Bust, and Seventeen as well as her own blog “The Ms. Education of Shelby Knox.”

Feb. 3:
· A pre-conference screening of the documentary film, “The Education of Shelby Knox” will begin at 7 p.m. Feb. 3 in the Firehouse Theatre at the Louise H. Underwood Center for the Arts located at 511 Ave. K.
· A panel discussion will follow with members from the film.

Feb. 4
· Registration and a welcome address begin at 8:30 a.m. in the Matador Room.
