Panelists will answer this question from different perspectives as they talk about dangerous women who have influenced their personal experiences and perspectives; risk taking and how it impacts personal, professional, and social relationships; and shifting ideas about women and their role in contemporary American society. Panelists include Senator Charleta B. Tavares; Photographer and Artist Staley Munroe; Sonia BasSheva Manjon, PhD. Director of Barnett Center, Associate Professor Art Admin, Education and Policy; and Heather Whaling, Founder/President of Geben Communication.
