The Clayman Institute is excited to welcome Kimberlé Crenshaw as the 2016 Jing Lyman Lecturer on October 11, 2016 at 4:00 p.m in Cubberley Auditorium.
The Jing Lyman lecture series honors trailblazers who have played a significant role in advancing gender equality and influenced the way we as a society think about gender. With her groundbreaking work in developing intersectionality, Kimberlé Crenshaw has refocused our understandings of gender and the connections between race, class, gender and social justice. In addition to being a path-breaking scholar, Crenshaw’s most recent work with the African American Policy Forum on the #SayHerName campaign has made visible Black women and girls’ experiences with police brutality.
Admission is free to the Stanford community. Please RSVP here and note that past events have reached capacity, so do register early.
