Tuesday, April 10 – Screening of (A)Sexual with lead activist and filmmaker David Jay
8:15-10:15pm, JG 106
Sponsored by OutLaws, Law/Culture, the Center for Gender and Sexuality Law, and Professor Emens’ Employment Discrimination Law class.

Facing a sex obsessed culture, a mountain of stereotypes and misconceptions, and a paucity of social or scientific research, asexuals—people who experience no sexual attraction—struggle to claim their identity. The documentary film (A)sexual follows the growth of a community that experiences no sexual attraction. In 2000, David Jay came out to his parents. He was asexual and was fine with it. And he was not alone. Studies suggest that 1% of the population is asexual. But in a society obsessed with sex, how do you deal with life as an outsider? Combining intimate interviews, verite footage, and animation with fearless humor and pop culture imagery, David and four other characters grapple with this universal question.

What’s the legal angle?  Asexuals are protected from discrimination under New York’s Sexual Orientation Non-Discrimination Act.  What might discrimination against asexuals look like?  How does it compare to discrimination against other protected groups?  What direction should the law go with regard to asexuality?  And what can this emerging identity category teach us about antidiscrimination law and politics more generally?  Discussion after the film—with lead activist David Jay and filmmaker Angela Tucker—will probe these questions, as well as anything else this provocative film brings to your mind.

Columbia University makes every effort to accommodate individuals with disabilities.  If you require disability accommodations to attend this event, please contact Rachel Jones (rachel.jones@law.columbia.edu or 212-854-7594) at least 5 days in advance of the event..

7-9pm, Case Lounge, JG 701
The event will include a screening of I Came to Testify, one of the five episodes in the Women, War & Peace series. I Came to Testify is the moving story of how a group of women imprisoned in the Bosnian town Foca broke history’s great silence – and stepped forward to take the witness stand in an international court of law. After the screening, there will be commentary and conversation with the filmmaker and Co-creator of Women, War & Peace, Pamela Hogan, and Refik Hodzic of the International Center for Transitional Justice. Discussion will explore the potential and the limitations of the law to transform the gender dynamic of war, and the ways in which a groundbreaking decision at the Hague – while a start – is only one step towards justice and reconciliation.  Cosponsored event with the Center for Institutional and Social Change, the Human Rights Institute, the International Center for Cooperation and Conflict Resolution, the Center for the Study of Law and Culture, and the Center for Intersectionality and Social Policy Studies.

Thursday, April 19 – Deconstructing and Reconstructing Mother: Regulating Motherhood in International and Comparative Perspective Workshop

  47. I acquired more something totally new on this weight-loss issue. Just one issue is a good nutrition is vital any time dieting. A big reduction in fast foods, sugary food items, fried foods, sweet foods, red meat, and whitened flour products could be necessary. Holding wastes parasitic organisms, and toxic compounds may prevent desired goals for shedding fat. While selected drugs in the short term solve the issue, the terrible side effects will not be worth it, and in addition they never supply more than a temporary solution. It can be a known undeniable fact that 95% of dietary fads fail. Thank you for sharing your notions on this blog site.

Travel insurance online is a good way to begin looking for a dependable company pertaining to international holiday insurance. Thanks for revealing your ideas.

The article (parts of it) is definitely very engaging which is probably why I am making an effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that.

For now I shall subscribe to your point but hope in the foreseeable future you connect your facts better.

  50. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could definitely be one of the greatest in its field. Fantastic blog!

  51. One thing I’d prefer to say is always that before purchasing more pc memory, look at the machine into which it would be installed. If the machine is definitely running Windows XP, for instance, the actual memory ceiling is 3.25GB. Setting up over this would purely constitute just a waste. Be sure that one’s mother board can handle the upgrade quantity, as well. Interesting blog post.
