Andi Zeisler: "Don't Just Change the Channel: Why Pop Culture Matters to Feminism, Activism, and Social Justice"

6:30 p.m. March 25, 2015
SSB Auditorium

A stock response to complaints about offensive and demeaning representation of women and others in popular media is often, "Well, just change the channel! You don't have to watch that show/read that book/see that movie." This presentation explicates why that line of thinking ignores the reality of how media and pop culture permeate every aspect of our lives, and offers an overview of media and pop culture as a focus of feminist activism.

This Women's History Month event is free and open to the public.
