Reflections on Women and Sexual Assault in the Era of #MeToo - given by Mary Frances Giles and Dr. Janese Free Newell
A lecture given by Mary Frances Giles and Dr. Janese Free Newell at Southborough L'Abri on May 25th, 2018. For more information, visit www.labri.org/mass and for more L'Abri lectures, visit the L'Abri Ideas Library.
Over the course of the past year, the #metoo movement has catapulted sexual harassment and assault, primarily against women, to the forefront of our cultural awareness. There appears to be a shift occurring in our collective American consciousness. Acts of sexual harassment and assault that have been historically overlooked are now being publicly discussed and confronted - from the covers of newspapers to our daily Facebook feeds. This lecture will explore the issues and questions brought forth by this cultural moment from theological, criminological, and sociological perspectives.
