To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the landmark statute Title IX, the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Illinois State University will host a discussion with civil rights attorney, author, and co-founder of Know Your IX, Alexandra Brodsky. The discussion will be hosted at noon on Wednesday, June 8, via Zoom. This discussion is free and open to the public, and attendees must register.

Brodsky will speak as part of Dr. Jenna Goldsmith’s course on Title IX, but all are encouraged to join. Brodsky is the author of Sexual Justice: Supporting Victims, Ensuring Due Process, and Resisting the Conservative Backlash. Brodsky also litigates high-impact cases surrounding civil rights abuses in schools and criminal legal cases.
