In October 2017, Tomi-Ann Roberts announced publicly in The New York Times that she was a victim of sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein—years earlier, when she was a college student. She has since been featured in several news stories describing the connection between that experience—and others—and her scholarly work.

Roberts is a professor of psychology at Colorado College. Her research interests include the sexual objectification of girls and women, self-objectification, and the consequences of these for their physical, emotional and cognitive well-being.

This talk will explore some of the academic and public policy work that has sprung from objectification theory over the past 20+ years, providing a feminist scholarly frame for the #MeToo movement.

A reception with light refreshments begins at 2:30 p.m. with the presentation at 3:30 p.m.
