Gloria Steinem—writer, activist, organizer, and inspiring leader—now tells a story she has never told before, a candid account of her life as a traveler, a listener, and a catalyst for change. –from Penguin Random House

“It’s amazing to have a lifelong heroine who is also one of my favorite writers. Gloria Steinem is a deeply revolutionary woman. She steered us through the contentious years of the women’s movement without losing her humanity or her wonderful sense of humor. She changed America in a fundamental way without being damaged by it or losing her joy. My Life on the Road is filled with beautifully told stories of the people she has spoken with and listened to, been changed by, helped organize, got radicalized by, could get lost in, could get found in. It is soul material, human and political, funny and touching, deeply spiritual. I began it again the day after I finished.”—Anne Lamott

2/3/2106 Daria Roithmayr UPC Book Club/Speaker Series event

1_AubreyHicks_DariaRoithmayr

Professor Roithmayr gave a fascinating talk on her book “Reproducing Racism” to WIM members and guests at a fusion UPC Book Club/Speaker Series event on February 3, 2016 at the School of Cinema. The Q&A after the event was lively and informative. And the book signing was delightful, with the USC Bookstore and Jonathan selling all the copies of the book on hand. What a wonderful time was had by all, and we are looking forward to the next one. So, c’mon USC Professors, publish!

Daria Roithmayr teaches and writes about the dynamics of law and social systems, focusing on the way that legal regulation and social behavior evolve in response to each other. Her recent book, “Reproducing Racism: How Everyday Choices Lock In White Advantage” (NYU 2014), explores the self-reinforcing dynamics of persistent racial inequality.

Noon to 1pm, Norris Medical Library West Conference Room

In anticipation of Professor Daria Roithmayr’s WIM-UPC Book Club event on February 3, both book clubs are reading her book, Reproducing Racism

This book is designed to change the way we think about racial inequality. Long after the passage of civil rights laws and now the inauguration of our first black president, blacks and Latinos possess barely a nickel of wealth for every dollar that whites have. Why have we made so little progress?
