White Nationalism and Misogyny: The Intersection of Hate
When: Wednesday, September 27 at 6:30 PM
Where: Columbia University Law School, Jerome Greene Hall, Room #106
The rise of an emboldened white nationalist movement across the country furthered by a complicit White House has spurred a need for an open dialogue about white supremacy and its misogynist underpinnings. What does this intersection mean for the future of equality and justice in our country?
NOW-NYC and the Columbia University Center for Gender and Sexuality Law are proud to host White Nationalism and Misogyny: The Intersection of Hate, a thought-provoking panel about the relationship between white supremacy and misogyny. Come hear from renowned scholars in critical race theory talk about how to tackle racism and sexism in this hostile climate. This event is co-sponsored by the African American Policy Forum.
Kimberlé Crenshaw, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the African American Policy Forum and Professor at Columbia Law School, is a leading scholar of critical race theory and has written about black feminist legal theory, politics, civil rights, and the law. The brilliant mind behind intersectionality, Crenshaw has been influential in contributing to the discussion around racial politics in America.
Jessie Daniels, PhD, Author and Professor of Sociology at Hunter College and at The Graduate Center, CUNY, has spent the last 25 years calling attention to white supremacy.
