Women, Power, and Rape Culture: The Politics and Policy of Underrepresentation

November 15 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Bonnie Stabile and Aubrey Leigh Grant, authors of Women, Power, and Rape Culture, discuss their book, which examines the movements that followed in the wake of Donald Trump’s election, such as #MeToo and #TimesUp. “Unlike other studies, it connects these traumatic events to women’s underrepresentation in the public sphere. Chapters consider the power of presidential speech, judges, and Congress to create structural barriers to women’s representation as well as the stultifying effects of weak college and university responses to sexual violence.”
