Judith Plaskow, renowned feminist theologian and professor emeritus of religious studies at Manhattan College, will deliver the annual women's & gender studies distinguished lecture on Thursday, March 31, at 7 p.m. in the Elaine Langone Center Forum at Bucknell University. This event is free and open to the public.

Prof. Plaskow's lecture is titled "The Gender Politics of Public Space: Bodies, Restrooms and Social Justice." Focusing on the case of women and transgender people, the lecture will explore how unequal power relations are reflected in the built environment and ask what it would mean to reclaim elimination in the way that feminist and queer studies have reclaimed sexuality.

A past president of the American Academy of Religion, Prof. Plaskow has lectured widely and feminist theology in the United States and Europe and is co-founder of The Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion. Her scholarly interests focus on contemporary religious thought with a specialization in feminist theology. She has a bachelor's degree from Clark University and a master's and doctorate from Yale University.
