Thinking Gender 2020: Sexual Violence as Structural Violence: Feminist Visions of Transformative Justice

March 6, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

This year marks Thinking Gender’s 30th anniversary!

FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 2020
CARNESALE COMMONS, UCLA

RSVP Details Coming Soon

Thinking Gender 2020 will focus on feminist, queer, trans, anti-carceral, transnational, and intersectional approaches to sexual violence. 

Recent #MeToo mobilizations against high-profile predatory sexual abusers including Harvey Weinstein, R. Kelly, and Jeffrey Epstein have heightened public conversation around sexual violence. While important contributions have challenged dominant approaches to sexual violence, much of it has remained caught in legalistic, carceral, or criminal justice discourses that emphasize the punishment of individual actors to the exclusion of envisioning alternative definitions of repair and justice. Such dominant approaches center evidence and proof, and offer only the punishment of individual perpetrators as remedy, often in ways that exacerbate existing structural inequalities. Decades of scholarship and activism have demonstrated the inefficacy of such punitive models to curb sexual violence as well as the ways in which they exacerbate the policing of already marginalized communities.
