The Cost of Hate Symposium, Part 2: Anti-sexism

What is the cost of hatred? Many of us are able to talk about what is good about diversity, and how we need to work toward a fairer, more representative society that offers more equitable access of social goods to all. Despite this commitment, we have experienced multiple expressions of hatred at UT and in the Knoxville community, which have forced us to address hatred as it impacts in our community. During this three-part discussion series, we will examine the cost to society of group-focused hatred.

In part two, we focus on anti-sexsim. While some Americans believe we have overcome an earlier culture of sexism and heterosexism, these forms of discrimination continue to impact our society in a variety of substantive ways.

UT faculty experts Patrick Grzanka and Tina Shepardson, Planned Parenthood Organizer Tory Mills, and SisterReach CEO Cherisse Scott will address ways in which these issues intersect with contemporary American discussions about topics such as politics, race, gender identity, sexuality, and religion. Sarah Eldridge, UT professor of German, will moderate the conversation.

We hope you will join us for the second panel discussion in our series addressing the cost to society of group-focused hatred. The event is open to the public and members of the UT community, but registration is required.
