Alexandra Brodsky, civil rights attorney and author, will speak on the complicated intersection of recent feminist movements to protect victims and concerns about fairness to the accused. In her book, Sexual Justice: Supporting Victims, Ensuring Due Process, and Resisting the Conservative Backlash (Metropolitan, August 2021), Alexandra argues that fair process can and must be a core part of the #MeToo movement—but that we should be wary of an anti-feminist backlash that has co-opted due process values to roll back progress on sexual harassment.
Alexandra Brodsky is an attorney at Public Justice, where she litigates civil rights cases concerning schools and the criminal legal system. Alexandra cut her teeth in the anti-violence movement as a founding co-director of Know Your IX, a youth-led campaign to end sexual harassment in schools. Alexandra received her B.A. from Yale College and her J.D. from Yale Law School. She clerked for the Honorable Marsha S. Berzon of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and was a Skadden Fellow at the National Women’s Law Center.
Moderated by SLS Professor Barbara Fried.
