The February 2017 issue of the LLI Resource Network newsletter offered some technological options for LLIs. This month OLLI San Diego State University and Corona Library partnered to offer live streaming of an Osher lecture. The lecture is also offered free and is open to the public. Consider streaming a lecture as another option to consider when researching technology options and curriculum options.

On Monday, April 3 at 10:30 a.m., The Coronado Library will stream the Osher Lecture entitled “Madonnas and Whores in the Workplace” in partnership with UC San Diego’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.

Much has been written about “lookism,” the preferential treatment given to those who conform to accepted societal standards of beauty. But in several recent court cases, female plaintiffs have alleged a sort of “reverse-lookism,” claiming that they were mistreated because they were deemed too physically attractive — “too hot” — for their employers. This presentation will use these cases as a lens for examining broader gender stereotypes in the courts, the media, and the public at large. It will discuss the extent to which gender stereotypes force women in the public eye into one of two molds, either pure and pristine with muted sexuality, or sexually promiscuous and vilified, and will consider the consequences of this false dichotomy.
