Social Justice Wednesdays - Virtual Talk with Dr. Kim Hong Nguyen

Dr. Kim Hong Nguyen (Communication Arts) presents Mean Girl Feminism: White Feminist Outrage and Salvation

From the Bitch Manifesto to the movie Mean Girls and the popularity of the mean girl trope, the right to be mean is the new frontier for white feminist discontent.
