Join scholars, journalists, and policy makers to talk about America’s ongoing war on sexual rights. Participants include Dagmar Herzog, author of Sex in Crisis: The NewSexual Revolution and the Future of American Politics and Professor of History, Lynn Paltrow, Executive Director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women, Nation columnist Katha Pollitt, and Faye Wattleton, Director of the Center for the Advancement of Women.
