WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7, 6-7:30 p.m.
Irène Théry explores what the DSK Affair and its aftermath reveal about attitudes toward rape and sexual violence, sexuality and seduction, feminism, and, from a legal perspective, the presumption of innocence and victims' rights, in a comparative, transatlantic perspective.

A specialist of the sociology of the family and private life, her research and public action focus on changing family structures, gender relationships and generational differences.
