On Misogyny Lecture Series

Following the #MeToo and Time's Up movements that illuminated the pervasiveness of misogyny in our culture, the Gender Institute organized a series of lectures aptly named "On Misogyny" to explore the intersectional nature of misogyny, its evolutions, and effects. 

The year-long series grappled with the meaning of misogyny: what is it and how does it differ from sexism? Our goal was to broaden our perspective and shift from focusing on individual misogynists to understanding misogyny as a structure of power. 

The series discussed many elements of misogyny including misogynoir, transmisogyny, himpathy, imperial misogyny and its relationship to imperial feminism. 

On Misogyny featured renowned feminist speakers.
