Violence Against the Women in Sex Work (Prostitution)

Biography:
Hello, I’m Anna Trinidad and I am a feminist. At Hunter, I study psychology and women and gender studies while expressing my creativity with makeup. I identify as a woman and I am a person of color and therefore, I am subjected to a lot of discrimination and even harassment by the patriarchal society that I live in. Therefore, I am quite interested in discussing the violence that women face in hopes of finding out how many other women are progressive in finding ways to fight back, gain recognition, and gain social equality around the world.

Violence Against Women with Disabilities

Biography:
My name is Danielle and I am currently a senior here at Hunter College. I have an associates degree in Biology, and from my former school, I came here to get another degree towards my future. My major here is Women And Gender Studies and I plan to use the knowledge I gain through this major in a different way than many may think.

I think my major will help me towards my goal because I will be able to apply to dental school with a different perspective and a deeper understanding of oppression. With this, I will be able to relate and empathize with all of the different types of patients I would encounter in my days of being a dentist
