S2G's MLF Breaking Boundaries: Gender Politics


MSU Professor and Chair of Sociology, Yasemin Besen-Cassino talks to the authors of three new books about women breaking cultural norms and how their experience reflects on the gender politics of today. Nancy Princenthal’s Unspeakable Acts: Women, Art and Sexual Violence in the 1970s is a groundbreaking exploration of how women artists of the 1970s combined art and protest to make sexual violence visible, creating a new kind of art in the process. Adrienne Miller’s In the Land of Men is a memoir about coming of age in the male-dominated literary world of the nineties, and becoming the first female literary editor of Esquire, while Victoria James’s memoir Wine Girl charts her career as America’s youngest sommelier and addresses repercussions, solutions and inclusion in the hospitality industry after #MeToo.
