Speaking of Women: Feminism and Free Speech
Mary Anne Franks
This digital archive extends the themes of Franks’s essay to examine debates around free speech. It collects links to essays, videos, podcasts, and other resources. While far from exhaustive, we hope it will be of use to teachers, students, and anyone interested in debates about free speech. Works included in the archive are meant to illuminate feminist debates and provide a range of resources; it is not intended to be exhaustive or reflective of Franks’s positions or the positions of Signs editors. To suggest any useful resources on the topic that are not currently included, we invite you to email the journal office.
