Chances are, if you are a woman living in New York City, you have a story about being harassed on public transportation. The recent story of the (awesome) college student who fought off her attacker and was able to snap his picture so he wouldn’t get away with his assault… got a lot of attention, but there are countless other stories of harassment that go untold. It’s time to break the silence and take a stand.

A conference in honor of the 40th anniversary of the Barnard Center for Research on Women
When: Sep 23-24, 2011
Forty years ago, the Barnard Center for Research on Women began its mission of using research and knowledge to advance feminist scholarship and long-term partnerships with activist groups. Inspired by the new women’s movement, BCRW became part of an historic moment that witnessed the proliferation of feminist activism, the establishment of women’s studies programs and women’s centers, and the founding of women’s bookstores and other cultural projects. This fall, we bring together our past, present and future collaborators as well as kindred institutions, scholars and activists engaged in social justice feminism to consider what kinds of collaborative projects are possible when scholarship and activism are joined.
This conference will bring together three generations to witness, respond and analyze present day realities in law, politics, the confluence of race, class and gender, the persistent questioning of women’s credibility, issues of black masculinity and current cases of sexual harassment. The conference will also include highlights from First Run Feature’s film about Anita Hill’s testimony, Sex and Justice.
