In this November 2018 lunchtime seminar led by LaShawnda Lindsay-Dennis, Ph.D., and Wellesley College student Vei Vei Thomas '21, participants examined how respectability politics influence the lived experiences of girls from diverse cultural backgrounds. Participants also engaged in a critical discussion about how societal beliefs about notions of femininity, respect, and dignity often police the bodies and behaviors of girls from marginalized groups.
