Anita Hill Annual Lecture on Gender Justice

The Brandeis University Office of the Provost (in conjunction with the Office of the President, Women's and Gender Studies, African and Afro-American Studies and the Heller School for Social Policy and Management) is honored to host the first ever
Anita Hill Annual Lecture on Gender Justice.

The inspiration for the series came from the energy generated by the 'Anita Hill 20 Years Later' conference produced last October by the lecture series' sponsor, feminist activism group Soapbox Inc. Brandeis will be the first host, with the lecture taking place at a different college or university each year. Juhu Thukral has been selected as the inaugural Anita Hill Gender Justice Lecturer from a strong and diverse pool of applicants.

Ms. Thukral, the Director of Law and Advocacy at The Opportunity Agenda, has worked to protect the human rights of women for over 20 years. She is a passionate advocate for the rights of low-income and immigrant women in the areas of sexual health and rights, gender-based violence, economic security, and criminal justice. She has also repeatedly shown courage and leadership in defending the human rights of women engaged as sex workers.

The Anita Hill Annual Lecture on Gender Justice will take place on Wednesday, January 30 at 5:00 p.m. in Rapaporte Treasure Hall, with reception to follow. Juhu Thukral will present "Gender. Sex. Money. New Frontiers in the Fight for Sexual Rights."
