Description

Presented by University of San Francisco Global Women’s Rights Forum and the JCCSF

With Leah Fessler

Journalist and recent Middlebury graduate Leah Fessler is initiating an important national dialogue on how young people really feel about modern sexual expectations, the intersection of hookup culture and feminism, and more broadly, campus sexual politics. For her senior thesis, “Can She Really, ‘Play That Game, Too’?,” Fessler interviewed more than 300 Middlebury students, professors and alumni to discover whether young people, and young women specifically, were actually enjoying or benefitting from hookup culture. Hear the surprising results and participation from current college students in a Town Hall-style discussion.

Featuring performances and stories from USF students, Fessler’s lecture will kick off the USF Global Women’s Rights Forum programming for the 2017 season.
