Illinois Valley Community College has several free brown bag lunch Women’s History Month events in March under the theme “Valiant Women of the Vote.”

The final event, “Pressing the Gender and Power Buttons: The IRL Community of Videogames,” is from noon to 1 p.m. Monday, March 30 in Room CTC124.

Cook Fesperman and Radek-Hall discussing what happens IRL (in real life) when women and girls begin to engage in the male-dominated world of online game playing, where people’s online personas may or may not match their real life genders and their opinions on gender are often expressed from the perceived safety of anonymity. 

IVCC’s Women’s History Month celebration is made possible by the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, SAGE, Sigma Kappa Delta, and dedicated IVCC faculty.
