Stephen Kinzer is a Visiting Fellow in International Studies at Brown's Watson Institute for International Studies. He is an award-winning foreign correspondent who has spent more than 20 years working for the New York Times.

I Am Not a Slut: Slut-Shaming in the Age of the Internet
Featuring Leora Tanenbaum ’91

New York City, NY | Pembroke Center Associates
6:30 pm, Location and directions provided upon RSVP
Young women today are encouraged to express themselves sexually. Yet when they do, they are derided as "sluts," caught in a double bind of mixed sexual messages. How can they be sexy without being slutty? And how did they get in this bind to begin with? Leora Tanenbaum ’91, author of the groundbreaking work Slut!, and the writer who coined the term slut-bashing—talks about her new book, I Am Not A Slut, and offers fresh insights into the digital and face-to-face worlds contemporary young women inhabit. She shares her new research on slut-shaming, involving the experiences of a wide range of teenage girls and young women from a variety of backgrounds, as well as parents, educators, and academics. Tanenbaum analyzes the coping mechanisms young women currently use and suggests a new direction to eradicate slut-shaming for good. Space is limited and preregistration is required. Cost: Free. Contact/RSVP: Martha Hamblett (401-863-3433). Thank you to Amy Finn Binder ’77, P’02, P’09 and Ava Seave ’77 for graciously hosting this event!
