The event will take place on April 18, 2014 in Smith Memorial Student Union at Portland State. This year's theme is Redefining Identity, Beyond the Binary: Feminist and Queer Theory In Our Everyday Lives.


We are happy to announce this year's keynote speaker, Michelle Habell-Pallan, (Check out her bio under Keynote) from the University of Washington. We are also excited to screen a preview of the film "Rock, Rage and Self Defense" along with a Q&A session with two of the filmmakers.
