'Feminism and Dating' to be Sept. 14 article discussion topic

RELEASED: Sept. 13, 2011

Women's and LGBTQ Resource Center graphicEAU CLAIRE — The Women's and LGBTQ Resource Center at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will host an article discussion titled "Feminism and Dating" at 6 p.m. Sept. 14 in the commons area of Towers Hall on UW-Eau Claire's upper campus.

The discussion will focus on a variety of issues related to the politics of dating, examining issues discussed in Jessica Valenti's book, "The Purity Myth," as well as the recently released, controversial dating and relationship guide titled "The Man Whispered: A Gentle, Results Orientated Approach to Communication."

Articles for the discussion can be accessed on the Women's and LGBTQ Resource Center's website.

The center hosts monthly article discussions, which focus on feminist issues such as self-esteem, sexual violence and the media portrayal of women. The discussions allow students to discuss important issues in a safe environment outside of the classroom.

During the remainder of the fall 2011 semester, the article discussions will begin at 6 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month in commons area of Towers Hall.
