YWTALKS: A Community Social Justice Series presents Ruth Vanita
YWTALKS: A Community Social Justice Series presents Ruth Vanita on Friday, Nov. 21 at 12 noon at the YWCA Missoula (1130 W Broadway). Professor Vanita will discuss anti-rape laws in India. India the world’s largest secular democracy, has been in the international news lately not because of higher rates of rape than other countries but because it has been the site of some of the largest-ever and most sustained protests and campaigns against rape. In response to these campaigns, the government has made laws against rape and sexual harassment increasingly punitive; the latest amendments prescribing the death penalty for some types of rape are controversial even among feminists. This event is free and open to the public. “YW Talks: A Community Social Justice Series” provides the Missoula community with a space to discover and exchange information about topics that pertain to women and those of diverse ethnic backgrounds. Community members are welcome to bring their lunch and enjoy the free lecture.
