Policing Women's Bodies in Performance

  • Weinberg/Newton Gallery 300 W. Superior, Suite 203 Chicago, IL 60654 United States

Rape Victim Advocates is hosting “Policing Women's Bodies in Performance,” a panel on the current regulations that prohibit women's full nudity at establishments where alcohol is being served. Is this a manifestation of rape culture that blames women for sexual violence? Or is this a common-sense law to protect the safety of female performers? How does this reflect the ever-changing opinion of what is pornography and what is art? Join RVA and three panelists, Bea Cordelia, Heather Gabel, and Britt Julious, for this exciting discussion. 

We will be featuring performances from our panelists before we sit down for the conversation. Contains nudity. 
$5 suggested donation.
People of all genders welcome. 
Wheelchair accessible.
