The Diane Weiss ’80 Memorial Lecture: Sex, Gender and Public Life

FGSSWeissPoster

You might hear the terms “sex” and “gender” tossed around quite a bit at Wesleyan— but why exactly do these continue to be such pressing issues in our country’s public sphere?  Alanna Greco ’13 invites you to, perhaps, find out why, as the 26th annual Diane Weiss memorial explores this topic :

The Diane Weiss ’80 Memorial Lecture is an annual FGSS lecture that
the family of one of the first Women’s Studies majors at Wesleyan
endowed in her memory. This year, “Sex, Gender and Public Life”
explores both why sex and gender remain such persistent issues in the
U.S. public sphere, and also why they remain persistently separated
from issues of government and economics in that same public
discourse.
