Internet Harassment and the Objectification of Women

Noted philosopher Martha Nussbaum, Ph.D., Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics at The University of Chicago, has achieved the rare status of public intellectual. Influential projects range from her pioneering work with Amartya Sen in developing the capabilities approach to poverty and human well-being to her books and commentaries on religious tolerance, on the role of the humanities and nonprofits, and on frontiers of justice, including those involving sexual orientation, the disabled and nonhuman animals. Nussbaum has long argued the relevance of gender to social justice.

This event is co-sponsored by the Program in Poverty, Justice and Human Capabilities in the Center for the Study of Women, Gender and Sexuality and the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy.
