Jaclyn Friedman, author/editor of Yes Means Yes!, will be coming to campus to give a lecture:
Yes Means Yes: How healing the sexual culture can help stop rape
Based on Friedman’s hit book Yes Means Yes: Visions of Female Sexual Power and a World Without Rape, this talk connects the dots between how the culture shames women for expressing their sexuality, how the media uses empty images of female sexuality to fuel sales, and how rape is allowed to function in society. Plus: practical action steps that everyone can take to start making change now.
- Date: Tonight, 2/18
