Gender, Sexism and Misogyny in the political histories of the United States
Wed 26 April 2017, 19:00 – 20:30 BST
Dr Rebecca Fraser from the University of East Anglia gives the first lecture in our "Debates in Today’s America" series.
From Victoria Woodhull, the first female candidate to stand for President in 1872, to Hillary Clinton’s recent campaign of 2016, the realities for and representations of women in the political sphere in the United States have been subject to sexist ridicule, misogynistic fear, and sometimes intense loathing. Dr Fraser's lecture will consider the histories of sexism and misogyny that have troubled the political arenas of the United States since its inception and reflect on the causes and consequences of this in 21st century America.
A "Debates in Today’s America" event presented by the 2nd Air Division Memorial Library, the University of East Anglia and the British Library Eccles Centre for American Studies.
