Jaclyn Friedman: How to Stop Letting the System Screw Us All
Much of the anxiety and fear women in our country feel around issues of their sexuality stems from forces that are not their fault, but are side effects of our toxic culture. In what Friedman calls our modern “era of fauxpowerment,” our culture and institutions give women the illusion of sexual power, with very little actual power to support it. In this conversation, Jaclyn Friedman will break down the causes and signs of fauxpowerment in media, politics, education, religion, and more, and give us tools to make positive change toward a culture that supports genuine sexual sovereignty for all. Jaclyn Friedman is a writer, speaker and activist, and creator of the hit books Yes Means Yes: Visions of Female Sexual Power and a World Without Rape (one of Publishers’ Weekly’s Top 100 Books of 2009, and #11 on Ms. Magazine’s Top 100 Feminist Nonfiction of All Time list) and What You Really Really Want: The Smart Girl’s Shame-Free Guide to Sex & Safety. Her podcast, Unscrewed, is paving new paths to sexual liberation, and was named one of the Best Sex Podcasts by both Marie Claire and Esquire.

About Us and Our Values:

The Humanist Hub is a place where you can connect with other people, act to make the world better, and evolve as a human being.

We are a center for humanist life — a nonreligious community committed to the power of human connection to help us do good and live well. We use reason and dialogue to determine our highest ethical values, we act on those values with love and compassion, and we help one another evolve as individuals, as we work to improve our world.

Founded in 1974 as the Humanist Chaplaincy at Harvard, we were a small organization serving Humanists, atheists, and agnostics at and around Harvard University for over 30 years. In recent years we have evolved into a hub for secular community-building activities at Harvard, in Greater Boston, and beyond.

All are welcome to join us every Sunday at 1:30pm! We also have many other public programs and ways you can get involved, on other days of the week.

We are located at 30 JFK Street (4th Floor) in Harvard Square.
