Writer and social critic Sarah Gailey will present a Morris Media & Society Lecture entitled "Fear of the Female Voice" at Utah State University. Gailey is a columnist for BarnsAndNoble.com and Tor.com, and tweets regularly on subjects like “how to punch a Nazi” and “how to show up gym rats” under the handle @gaileyfrey, where she describes herself as a “shrill feminist harpy” and “bad influence.” Her commentary often addresses social change through the lens of pop culture. "Sarah's writing invites readers to the visit the other side of knowing," said Debra Jenson, an assistant professor in the Department of Journalism and Communication at Utah State. "She forces us to think about issues from a different perspective, seeing the other side of villains and questioning our image of heroism. The chance to hear her speak directly to Utahns and the issues we care about should not be missed."
