Vanessa Grigoriadis: Blurred Lines: Sex, Power, and Consent on Campus

Please join us at Roosevelt House as we welcome Vanessa Grigoriadis, contributing editor at the New York Times Magazine and Vanity Fair, to mark the publication of her new book, Blurred Lines: Rethinking Sex, Power & Consent on Campus. Attempting to dispel the confusion that shrouds the topic of sex on campus, Grigoriadis traveled to schools large and small, talking candidly with dozens of students, as well as administrators, parents, and researchers. In Blurred Lines, Grigoriadis argues that a new sexual revolution is sweeping the country, with college students on the front lines.

At Roosevelt House, she will discuss the welter of conflicting statistics about the prevalence of campus rape and a range of other topics, including how schools, students, and parents can make college a safer, richer experience. We hope you will be able to join us for this timely discussion of how long-standing rules of sex and power are being rewritten from scratch.

Date: Tuesday, September 19
Time: 6:00 - 8:00 pm
Place: Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute, 47-49 East 65th Street (between Park and Madison Avenues)
