      EVENT DETAILS
      Redefining Rape: Sexual Violence in the Era of Suffrage & Segregation (MLF)

      Estelle Freedman, Edgar E. Robinson Professor in U.S. History, Stanford University

      Professor Estelle Freedman explores rape throughout American history and how aspiring citizens have tried, repeatedly, to redefine rape. Generations of women’s rights and racial-justice advocates have rejected those who have tried to define rape as a brutal attack on a chaste, unmarried, white woman by a stranger, often depicted as a black man, and have argued that white men's freedom to be sexually coercive lay at the heart of political power. The modern civil rights and feminist movements continue to grapple with both the insights and the dilemmas of these first campaigns to redefine rape in American law and culture.
