16th Annual Women's History Conference

The Newer Normal: Global Perspectives on Sexuality and Gender

Featuring Scott Turner Schofield, award-winning performer and transgender activist

Saturday March 1, 2014, 8:30 a.m. - 6:15 p.m.

Since the defeat of Proposition 8 banning gay marriage in California, the LGBT movement has claimed several significant victories in the struggle for civil rights in the United States. Despite these advances, gender non- conformists at home and around the world face daunting challenges in their fight for fair treatment and equality.  In some places, they face the threat of violence daily. The 'Kill the Gays' law in Uganda, the draconian laws and brutality against sexual minorities in Russia and the Emo killings in Iraq are only a few of the challenges LGBTQ people face globally. The 16th Annual Sarah Lawrence Women’s History Conference seeks to explore all aspects of gender identity and gender expression.
