Sexism and Progressives - a panel discussion
Somewhere in the discussion of Julian Assange and the rape charges against him, the women involved have been lost. What if the charges are true? Do we sweep them under the rug is the accused is a progressive hero? How far have we come since the 60's when men primarily made the activist decisions and women primarily made the coffee? Join Kathleen Barry, Susan Lamont, Carl Patrick, and others in a discussion of this important subject.

CHALLENGING THE MASCULINITY OF WAR: WOMEN SOLDIERS AND REMAKING MEN.
What happens to women when they enter the US military?
How did combat and killing come to be a gender expectation of men?
Why are we expected to believe that war is inevitable? 
Who benefits from the power of individual men to abuse and rape women soldiers and
the loss of soul that dehumanizes soldiers in combat?

Helen Benedict, Professor, Columbia University and Kathleen Barry, Professor Emerita, Penn State University will speak from their different approaches to these question and discuss with each other and the audience how feminism is fundamental to challenging the masculinity of war.
