Gender equality demands equal opportunity to speak and be heard. Yet, in recent years, the clash between equality and free speech in the context of gender has intensified – in the media, the workplace, college campuses, and the political arena, both online and offline.  The internet has given rise to many novel First Amendment issues that particularly impact women, like nonconsensual pornography, online harassment, and online privacy. This symposium – marking the occasion of 100 years of women at Fordham Law School – will bring scholars and practicing lawyers from around the nation to address many of the pressing challenges facing feminists and free speech advocates today.
