"Feminism Today" Brown Bag

November 16
12:00 PM — 1:00 PM
CETLS, 199 Chambers St., ROOM S510D

Harvey Weinstein harassed, assaulted, and raped women for decades before facing exposure and censure. Our current president called his female opponent a "nasty woman" and bragged about sexually assaulting women. According to the CDC, almost 1 in 5 women will experience rape during their lifetime and about 1 in 20 will be the victim of sexual violence other than rape. Yet Men's Rights Advocates are trying to make "feminism" a dirty word. Even feminist allies may claim that sexism and gender discrimination is "over and done with." We're not living in a post-sexist or post-feminist society; why are so many people eager to say otherwise? Join this session to talk about the persistence of sexism and the war on feminism. The discussion will be led by Dr. Jaime Weida from the English Department.

This event is a collaboration between CETLS and the Women's Studies Project FIG, as part of a faculty-led "brown bag" series on pedagogy that takes place once a month in CETLS. Each meeting will focus on a specific topic related to teaching and learning. We will discuss effective teaching strategies as well as challenges in a non-formal environment. Please bring your own lunch!

Please RSVP to cetls@bmcc.cuny.edu.
