Inclusive Reading Club: Stop telling women to smile Online
Join us with special guest facilitator Dr. Laura O'Toole, Professor of Sociology, with Cultural, Environmental, and Global Studies, in exploring the culture of gender-based street harassment, and how women are working to expose the pervasiveness of harassment and find a cathartic reckoning. We’re reading excerpts from the book Stop telling women to smile: Stories of street harassment and how we're taking back our power by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh and the essay “Everything from ‘Beautiful’ to ‘Bitch’” by Melinda Mills, from Gender violence: Interdisciplinary perspectives, (3rd ed.), co-edited by Laura L. O'Toole, Jessica R. Schiffman, and Rosemary Sullivan. We'll incorporate the art from Fazlalizadeh's street art project addressing gender based street harassment. Readings for the Inclusive Reading Club are posted on the library’s website under Course Reserves, and find much more information about the IRC on the padlet (online bulletin board).
