Discussion Night: Gender and the Media

Today at 4pm, join the HeForShe Society and guest speaker Dr. Kaitlynn Mendes for a casual discussion in which all attendees will have the opportunity to express their opinions.

In this talk, they will examine the historical and contemporary ways that feminism, feminist activists and their goals have been represented in the mainstream media over a 100 year period. From ‘failed women’ to ‘radical, bra-burning deviants’, to glamorous and sexy, in this talk we will hear about the impact the media’s representation of feminism has on society, and for women’s progress more generally.
