Peggy Orenstein, "Girls & Sex" - Jan. 17
Elon University's Women's, Gender and Sexualities Studies program invites Peggy Orenstein for The Lauren Dunne Astley Memorial Lecture in Lakeside Hall, Moseley Center at 6 p.m.
While the media has focused—often to sensational effect—on the rise of casual sex and the prevalence of rape on campus, Peggy Orenstein provides comprehensive and in-depth information with which to understand, and navigate, our complicated new world. She examines issues related to pornography and sexual assault. Her powerful reporting opens up a dialogue on a potent, often silent, subtext of American life today.
