#MeToo and the Supreme Court: One Year after Christine Blasey Ford
Wednesday, September 25, 12:00-1:00pm, Ketchum 371

Ford testifying left hand up

     A year ago on September 27, 2018, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the world that Justice Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers. This brown bag lunch discussion will feature three CU Boulder faculty who will share their thoughts, observations, and takeaways on the one-year anniversary of this landmark hearing. We invite the CU Boulder and local Boulder community to join us in thinking and talking about the ramifications of Dr. Blasey Ford’s testimony and the #MeToo movement. Please bring a brown bag lunch—the CHA (Center for Humanities & the Arts) will provide beverages and dessert—and bring your comments and questions for what we are hoping will be a lively and provocative discussion about sexual assault in US culture and society.

CU Boulder Faculty Panelists:
Aya Gruber, Professor, School of Law
Honor Sachs, Assistant Professor, History
Nick Villanueva, Assistant Professor, Ethnic Studies
