Ojai Chautauqua Panel - Beyond the Whistle-Blowers: What comes next? Power, Gender, and Writing New

(Always Call to Verify Dates & Times)
   In 2017, a group of courageous women and men stepped forward to talk about their experiences as victims of sexual harassment and assault. The overwhelming public and media response has led to a broad societal understanding that we must take immediate and aggressive steps to confront this widespread problem. Join us as we convene a panel of academic, professional and media experts to discuss the legal, political, social and cultural challenges of building consensus toward a new set of answers.
   The purpose of the Ojai Chautauqua is to engage Ventura County in civil discourse about controversial and highly passionate subjects. The Chautauqua was an adult education movement in the United States, highly popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Chautauqua assemblies expanded and spread throughout rural America until the mid-1920s. The Chautauqua brought entertainment and culture for the whole community, with speakers, teachers, musicians, entertainers, preachers, and specialists of the day. Former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt was quoted as saying that Chautauqua is “the most American thing in America.” The Ojai Chautauqua is continuing this movement, with a special focus on encouraging civil discourse on controversial and highly passionate subjects. The feedback so far has been phenomenal. Civil discourse is dangerously absent from all aspects of contemporary life. The result of this failing is not only sad… it is dangerous. If we can develop this essential ability, we can begin to affect a positive change to many aspects of life that can extend far and wide.
