North and South JOINT Meeting

Thursday September 7, 2023

Please join JCDW for a joint North and South meeting on September 7.  Please note the different meeting place and information.

September 7, 2023
Antioch Library
8700 Shawnee Mission Parkway
Merriam, KS 66202
We will gather at 6:00.  We need to be out of the room with chairs stacked by 8:00, so to facilitate that,  the speaker will start at 6:15.   We will have business and candidates talk after the speaker.   It will be hybrid with a Zoomoption.
Our speaker is Professor Alesha Doan, a professor from the department of Sexuality Studies at the University of Kansas.  She will give us some insight into the laws and policies negatively affecting women today and the cultural misogyny behind them.

Alesha E. Doan is an Associate Professor at the University of Kansas and holds a joint appointment in the School of Public Affairs & Administration and the Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies Department. Professor Doan’s interdisciplinary research program is situated at the intersections between gender, public policy and organizations, with a substantive focus on reproductive politics, sexual violence, and gender & the military. Her research examines the ways in which gender is infused into the social and political structures that shape formal and informal practices. Professor Doan interrogates how these gendered practices create obstacles for people that limit their decisional autonomy, and create inequities in organizations, policies and the lived experiences of people. Her publications include articles in a variety of journals as well as four books: Abortion Regret: The New Attack on Reproductive Freedom (co-authored, Praeger 2019), Organizational Obliviousness: Entrenched Resistance to Gender Integration in the Military (co-authored, Cambridge University Press, 2019), Opposition and Intimidation: The Abortion Wars and Strategies of Political Harassment (University of Michigan Press 2007), and The Politics of Virginity: Abstinence in Sex Education (co-authored, Praeger 2008).

Welcome to the new JCDW North Membership Chair!


Please welcome Bev Reeves-Dudley, the new JCDW North Membership chair!

From Bev:

I have been a member of JoCo Dem Women off and on since its inception. I am very proud of this organization and have delighted in watching its size, structure and influence grow over the past 2+ decades. I care about electing progressive, community minded candidates which the organization assists with its PAC status. Supporting good candidates who will advocate for Democratic policies is a great way to improve many peoples’ lives now and in the future. 

I am excited to humbly join this effort as part of this excellent, persistent, experienced group.
