Sexual Politics, Sexual Violence and the Communist Left: Bettina Aptheker


a lecture by Bettina Aptheker

Read a review of this talk!

September 19, Monday
6:30 to 8 pm

Bettina Aptheker, Feminist Studies and History, UC-Santa Cruz

Following the publication of Aptheker’s memoir, Intimate Politics, a storm of controversy ensued in a public debate on the Internet concerning her disclosure of childhood sexual abuse. In addition, Aptheker received literally hundreds of letters from readers who revealed their own experiences with childhood abuse in Communist and Left families about which they had been silenced. Based upon this experience and complemented by work in the Communist Party archives Aptheker will present preliminary approaches towards a history of these issues within the Communist Left between the 1940s and the 1970s.
