Over the last forty years, women, through poetry and song lyrics, fiction and memoir, social science research and political treatise have raised the problem of cruelty among women. They describe what it feels like to be treated cruelly, abandoned, ignored, and victimized by other women, they wonder at the causes of this behavior, and allow themselves to imagine a different model of friendship for women absent such drama. In this talk, Taylor will trace the social and intellectual genealogies of these complaints, and suggest how we might make good sense of these largely ignored voices in the context of our own lives.
Judith Taylor is an Associate Professor of Sociology and Women’s Studies at the University of Toronto and studies feminist women’s movements, especially during periods of retrenchment.
