Feminist academics host ‘expert’ in microaggressions panel
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) hosted a panel last week to lament the “psychological impact of gendered microaggressions.
“(Not) All In Your Head: How Women Internalize Sexism,” held at NYU Washington DC, featured a small roster of female academics, including a “world-renowned expert in microaggressions” Professor Gina Torino of SUNY Empire State College, and C. Nicole Mason, who directs a research center.
The panel began with Paige Robnett, the College Relations Manager at the AAUW, outlining the alleged impact that microaggressions have on their victims.
“Research shows that gender based microaggressions actually create a culture in which women’s work is devalued, and women start devaluing themselves,” Robnett argued. “The fact is, sexist comments add up, and they hurt women’s confidence.”
Hurt confidence has a number of negative impacts, including making women less likely to choose to run for office or negotiate their pay, she argued.
Robnett then introduced the panelists, who quickly got down to business — complaining about how unintentional questions and comments can hurt women’s feelings.
