Constitution Day: Taking Liberties: Sexual Misconduct and Abuse of Power in the age of #metoo

The event will be held for Thursday, Sept. 20, from 7-9 p.m. in Falvey Hall, located within the Brown Center at 1301 Mount Royal Ave.

Carolee Schneemann, a nationally recognized visual artist who is credited with transforming the definition of art, especially as it relates to the body, sexuality and gender, will headline the panel discussion of this year’s programming around Constitution Day.

The free event, sponsored by the MICA and the ACLU of Maryland, commemorates the holiday (September 17) with panels and commentary on contemporary issues in politics, government, civic engagement and activism.

This year’s forum, entitled Taking Liberties: Sexual Misconduct and Abuse of Power in the age of #metoo will be an intersectional discussion on Women’s Rights that ties together threads about sexual harassment, reproductive rights, the rights of all women – lesbian, transgender, women of color, immigrant women and more.

Alongside Schneemann, this year’s panel will also include labor activist and civil rights attorney Monica Ramirez, and scholar-activist Kalima Young. The discussion will be moderated by Sheri Parks, MICA’s Vice President for Strategic Initiatives.

Established in 2005, Constitution Day continues the MICA’s tradition of leadership in raising and exploring important political issues.

A wonderfully positive discussion about women-led movements and ways to be intersectional in those movements. Definitely worth attending!
