Women’s and Gender Studies will host the first colloquium talk of the year Friday, Sept. 16 from 11:45 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Women’s Center (154 Bridges).

Talk: “Wolf Whistles Dressed in Sheep’s Clothing: Street Harassment’s Role in Normalizing Objectification and Perpetuating Rape Culture” Presented by Lindsey Middlecamp

This presentation will examine how street harassment (and the common themes which emerge in discussing street harassment) perpetuate and reflect broader themes within rape culture. Topics will include a brief introduction to street harassment resources and research, the intersections between street harassment, racism, homophobia, and gender conformance, a dialogue about the successes and failures of recent media campaigns and activism projects addressing street harassment, methods of DIY activism, and more.

Please join us for an engaging conversation on eradicating street harassment and violence.
