Event details

Decreasing numbers of people describe themselves as feminists today, yet (nearly) everyone thinks women should have specific rights. Is it possible to make sense of any of these terms anymore? Calling upon ancient, medieval, and modern thinkers, Erika Bachiochi will argue in favor of sex realist feminism as the single best way to ground women's rights and reference her most recent publication, The Rights of Women: Reclaiming a Lost Vision.


Erika Bachiochi is a Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and a Senior Fellow at the Abigail Adams Institute where she founded and directs the Wollstonecraft Project. A 2018 Visiting Scholar at Harvard Law School, Bachiochi is a legal scholar specializing in equal protection jurisprudence, feminist legal theory, Catholic social teaching, and sexual ethics. Her newest book, The Rights of Women: Reclaiming a Lost Vision was published in 2021 by Notre Dame University Press.
