Purity Myth – Screening & Discussion
March 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
As Women’s History Month draws to a close, we invite you to explore how societal pressure is used to undermine women’s autonomy.
In this video adaptation of her bestselling book, The Purity Myth, pioneering feminist blogger Jessica Valenti trains her sights on “the virginity movement”.
Dr. Megan McNamara, an instructor in the Sociology Department and an affiliate with the Center for Innovations in Teaching and Learning and UCSC’s Institute for Social Transformation will lead the discussion.
