Join CACWN and Ellen Bravo, Cornell ’61, for a talk on her new novel, Again and Again -- a political thriller that also deals with sexual violence on campus and male privilege. The book talks about the short-term and the long-term harmful effect of rape on survivors, as well as those who are secondary victims, friends, family members, and romantic partners. Although disguised, it is clear to alumae what the upstate N.Y. university campus is where much of the action occurs.

A lifelong activist, Bravo heads Family Values @ Work, a network of state coalitions working for family-friendly policies. She is the former director of 9to5. 

Cost: $10 covers light breakfast.

Metro: Farragut North (Red Line) or Farragut West (Orange, Blue, Silver).

Thanks to ZFG Architects and Margie DeBolt, Cornell ‘77 , for hosting this event.

This event will also highlight the work of two local groups focusing on campus violence against women: Know Your IX and Network for Victim Recovery of DC.

Copies of the paperback book will be available for sale.
