Cross Talk: A Multicultural Feminist Symposium: In the Face of Violence
June 5 1993
“What are the links between the private and public spheres of violence against women-oppressive economic policies, undemocratic uses of medical technologies, sexual harassment and domestic violence? How have feminists developed oppositional practices, alternative organizations, and worked towards empowerment within existing institutions?”1

“Cross Talk addresses the entangled questions of race, gender and sexuality, bringing together a wide range of activists, artists, and cultural critics who have energetically fought against racism and sexism in cultural institutions, educational programs, medical practices, and the legal system. Rather than recreate a set of neat oppositions–black versus white, Latino versus Anglo – Cross Talk will chart the overlapping and contradictory worlds inhabited by diverse communities.
