I want to go to this Ontario Bar Association program (click through link or see below), but I can’t make it work with my schedule.   Next best option:

in exchange for a promise to write up a short blog post on this event OR some other issue (pls specify) OR do 8-10 tweets on the night for IFLS, I will hand out max four student tickets to this event to Osgoode students.  Send me an email! slawrence at the usual osgoode. first come first serve.

NB: You have to be a student member of the OBA/CBA (or you can buy a membership for $20) to attend on the student tickets i’m offering here – and i’m prioritizing people who will actually attend, as opposed to watch webcast).

It’s an opportunity to have someone else make your dinner, and to see Prof Brenda Cossman speak, should be fun. Do you read her posts at SexText, the blog of the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies at U of T?  She also tweets, @BrendaCossman.

 

 

Slutwalks: Part of the solution, or part of the Problem?
November 3, 2011

SlutWalks began in the spring of 2011 after a Toronto police officer told York University students that to remain safe, “women should avoid dressing like sluts.” In angry response, young women (and men) marched in Toronto and over 70 cities around the world, often dressed in bras, halter tops and garter belts.

New York Times reporter Rebecca Traister and others have questioned whether SlutWalks leave young feminists open to the very kinds of attacks they are battling. In this session, the panel will explore from a legal perspective, whether SlutWalks are a positive or negative phenomena in the ongoing struggle to eliminate sexual violence against women.
