Sexual Paranoia on Campus

When: Monday, March 5th, 7 pm
Where: Lubar Commons, 7th Floor, UW Law School

A committed feminist, Laura Kipnis was surprised to find herself the object of a protest march by student activists for writing an essay about sexual paranoia on campus.  After being brought up on Title IX complaints for creating a “hostile environment,” Kipnis defied confidentiality strictures and wrote a whistle-blowing essay about the 72-day  investigation. Her latest book, Unwanted Advances, raises the stakes regarding free speech on campus, “safe spaces”, feminist paternalism, and the vast federal overreach of Title IX.
