AWP is a diverse feminist community of psychologists and allied professionals invested in the integration of personal, professional, and political power in the service of social justice. We challenge unexamined privilege and dominant discourses that marginalize and oppress within psychology and the wider society. AWP accomplishes this by promoting feminist scholarship,teaching, practice, and networking, and through mentoring, activism, and influencing public policy.
Every year AWP conference organizers choose a theme. This year’s theme is Sexual Agency/Sexual Rights with an understanding that Sexual Rights includes Reproductive Justice.We will have speakers who will inspire members to think deeply and critically about reproductive justice and the context of and changing meanings of sexual agency.For Austin 2020, pre-Conference Workshops occur on Thursday, March 5, 2019, followed by a welcome reception from 5pm to 7pm and some late night presentations and discussions focusing on sex, sexuality, and disability. The keynote by Loretta Ross starts a full day of presentations on Friday, March 6, concluding with feminist karaoke. Saturday, March 7th, opens with the annual awards ceremony and a plenary session in which three scholars, Laina Bay-Cheng, Deb Tolman, and Alexandra Rutherford interrogate the meaning of sexual agency in neoliberal times.Saturday night begins with a show by Austin transgender comedian https://www.carinamagyar.com/ and ends with a dance party hosted by an Austin DJ.
