Gender and Genocide: Sexual Violence during the Holocaust and Other Genocides, Moderated by Gloria Steinem

Sunday, March 20, 2011

2–2 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Gloria Steinem will moderate a panel discussion featuring the co-editors of the groundbreaking book Sexual Violence against Jewish Women during the Holocaust, recently published by Brandeis University Press/University Press of New England. The program is one of several during March that mark the fourth anniversary of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. Dr. Sonja M. Hedgepeth and Dr. Rochelle G. Saidel, coeditors of the book, will speak with Nava Semel (author of And the Rat Laughed), Maman Jeanne Kasongo L. Ngondo (President and Founder of the Shalupe Foundation), and Jessica Neuwirth (founder of Equality Now) about the book and its genesis, as well as the current state of rape and genocide worldwide, asking: Can this new understanding of sexual violence during the Holocaust decrease and prevent sexual violence during other genocides? A book signing will follow the discussion. Please join us for a reception to mark the 4th anniversary of the Sackler Center in the EASCFA galleries following the discussion and book signing. Free with Museum admission.
