Conversations to join in the DC area this month

So I was looking at my calendar, and noticed there were a good deal of conversations to join this month. Wanted to list them here, in case anyone else was interested. While I mentioned one of them in a previous post, regarding my agenda for the month, others were not included. And there were enough I thought it warrented a dedicated entry

Just a note, most of these events only have Facebook event pages with their information. If you're not on Facebook and would like more information, send me a message and I'll shoot it over to you.

Here we go:

Monday, November 16
5:30 pm to 9 pm

Woolly Mammoth Theatre

Imagine a future free of gender roles and stereotypes, where anatomy doesn’t influence one’s destiny and women can make career, family and personal decisions without societal pressure, stigma or discrimination. In this future, we understand that equality is not about bolstering a gender or group into a position of privilege, but instead about liberating both women and men, by eliminating gender norms, fixed roles and the judgment that comes with living outside these societal constructs.

More information on their website.
