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.
