Professors Rosa-Linda Fregoso (Latin American and Latino Studies), Aída Hurtado (Psychology), Catherine Ramírez (American Studies), and Felicity Schaeffer-Grabiel (Feminist Studies) have been selected by the National Women's Studies Association's International Task Force to represent the organization at the Women's World Congress to be held in Madrid, Spain, July 3-8.

The UCSC professors will present an interdisciplinary panel titled "Visuality, Corporeality, and Power: Women Artists, Activists, and Social Actors in the Américas" before an audience of academics and leaders in government, civil society, and the United Nations, in an effort to influence policy development and intellectual endeavors globally.
