The collective is made up of a number of women who meet every month to discuss a myriad of topics pertaining to gender and inter-sectional studies. Normally, the group meets on Wednesdays from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Water, coffee/tea and light refreshments are often provided.
Before each session, the designated Facilitator is responsible for introducing the topic of discussion and articles, lectures and videos to read and watch beforehand. At the monthly session, the Facilitator is responsible for preparing a comprehensive reader introducing main points from the material for the session as well as defining key concepts and terms and discussion questions.
The role of organizing the monthly sessions is the responsibility of the Collective’s Coordinator – a six-month rotational designation. This term’s collective coordinator is Mayra Navarette.
