Title IX Civil Rights Evolution:

And Even More of Us Are Brave


The Feminist Playbook for Winning Back Title IX

Dr. Jessica Cabrera wrote her dissertation as a critique of the various current strategies that feminists use to try to end sexual harassment through Title IX laws. Her presentation will discuss some of these flaws, and how both activists and university administrators can get involved in better organizing strategies.


Intersectional Stereotyping and Sexual Harassment of Women Students of Color

Professor Nancy Chi Cantalupo will discuss several factors that contribute to the disproportionate vulnerability of women of color—students included—to sexual harassment and gender-based violence. She will emphasize the role of stereotyping and address what we can each do to reduce and prevent sexual harassment.


Title IX, Esports, and #EToo

Most youth play online games, but approximately 70 percent of females who game hide their gender identity while gaming because of rampant sexual harassment. Universities are increasingly awarding video gaming scholarships, fielding competitive esports teams, constructing esports arenas and promoting student interaction through gaming, but they aren’t anticipating the sexual cyberviolence, harassment and technology-enabled abuse that commonly occur through gaming. Professor Jane Stoever will discuss how universities—motivated by Title IX mandates and inclusion principles—can affirmatively create responsible gaming initiatives with goals of violence prevention, player protection and harm minimization.
