Peggy Orenstein with Katy Sewall: Teaching Girls About Sex


Thursday, April 21, 2016

This event has expired.

For many parents, talking to children about sex is hard and, according to Peggy Orenstein (Girls & Sex, Cinderella Ate My Daughter), it’s even harder to discuss the subject with growing girls. Because of sexual assault rates on college campuses, the emphasis placed on virginity, and female-focused words like slut, young women have a harder time navigating the murky waters of sexual activity. She’ll explain the extra pressures placed on girls (from teens through college) and explore the gamut of sex-related topics: views on STIs, LGBTQ-specific concerns, porn, purity pacts, hook-up culture, proper sex ed, and rape. This event is not just for parents and teachers. Orenstein’s advice will speak to anyone who knows—or is—a young woman. This event will be moderated by Town Hall program director Katy Sewall.
