Sexist comments and remarks are prevalent and normalized in everyday conversation, public discourse, and virtually every other social setting. In order to understand how sexism plays out in Utah, the Utah Women & Leadership Project recently conducted a large research study designed with the intent of collecting and analyzing a wide variety of sexist comments experienced by women across the state, in addition to the responses women made (or wish they had made) to such comments. The project’s goal is to educate the public on the many forms of conscious and unconscious sexist comments made by individuals (both men and women). In addition, by examining the types of responses reported in our study, the project aims to equip women with the tools they need to better combat the sexism they experience from day to day.
Come hear from Susan Madsen, Founding Director of the Utah Women & Leadership Project, and Robbyn Scribner, Research Fellow of the Utah Women & Leadership Project, who will speak at this Global Women’s Studies Colloquium event.
