Women's Center Brown Bag Series: Giving Hope to Tibetan Women

Wednesday, September 23 2009 at 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM


Travis Thompson, a former University of Idaho student, will discuss his book, "Breaking the Shackles: 50 Years of Tibetan Women's Struggle", and present information on his newly-established non-profit organization, TACTIC. TACTIC is a social activist organization that helps indigenous cultures around the world preserve their history and maintain independence in a modernizing world. The organization is hoping to start an outreach program at the University of Idaho to aid Tibetan women seeking higher education opportunities within the Indian and Nepalese university education system. The program will take place in the Women’s Center lounge, Memorial Gym 109, and is free and open to all.
