Rethinking Virginity Conference


May 3, 2010
10:15am- 5:15pm

Is there a sex-positive way to teach abstinence? What are the historical and cultural origins of the virginity ideal? How does a queer person lose their virginity? Does anyone even know what virginity really is?

From debunking myths to defying norms, the Rethinking Virginity Conference will feature gender and sexuality scholars and experts, including:

Lori Adelman ’08 (Feministing.com, International Women’s Health Coalition)
