Dear Friends of the Feminist Sexual Ethics Project,
In just a week and a half, we will be gathering for a remarkable conversation on how to ensure that all rape complainants have their cases judged on the merits, rather than tainted by harmful racial-sexual stereotypes. The conference is centered around a powerful theatrical performance. Panelists from the areas of law, religion, literature, psychology, and performance will help audience members find new ways to ensure that our criminal justice system is truly just.
Some of you live at great distance, indeed, as far away as Ghana, Lebanon, Norway, and Germany. But perhaps you know people in New England or New York to whom you can forward this announcement.
In addition, we will be videotaping parts of the conference, which we will be posting to the Feminist Sexual Ethics website. Thus, you will be able to view some of it after the event.
For those who are able to participate directly in the conversation, please register so that we can plan for seating and for the reception.
