So much to do tomorrow night!

There are two great events happening tomorrow night (Wednesday, March 25), and it looks like they're spaced so that you could go to both of them!

First, you should go to Feminisrael. It's is happening in Frist 307 at 8 pm, and it's featuring Dyonna Ginsburg, who is currently the Director of the Israeli NGO "Bema'agalei Tzedek" (In Circles of Justice). Bema'agalei Tzedek is a group of yount social entrepreneurs that strive to createa more just Israeli society informed and inspired by Jewish values. She previously served as the International Director of Yavneh Olami and is currently on both the Yavneh Olami and PresenTense Board. Come hear her speak about Socioeconomic Issues in Israeli Society and the Entrepreneurs Who Tackle Them. There will be some snacks (always delicious) and we hear that she's a great speaker!

Then, you should check out the Roundtable, which is at 9:30 pm in the Wilcox Seminar Room (B208). It's a new student discussion group that brings together students of different beliefs and backgrounds to talk about difficult issues, something that I think we can all agree this campus needs. Each week, they discuss one resolution after a quick introductory briefing by two speakers, one representing each side of the resolution. This week's subject is that tricky consent issue that we've discussed on Equal Writes in the past couple of weeks. Their resolution is: Having sex with a person who is drunk should be considered rape.

How did the Roundtable go? I'm very interested. Could someone who was there report?
