Roxane Gay, He Xiaopei, Xiao Meili; moderated by Emily Rauhala [UPDATE: Due to a last-minute emergency, Roxane is no longer able to travel to China. This event will go as planned, but we will provide a full refund to those who request it.]

How universal are issues of gender, politics, race, sexuality, privilege, class, and identity? Roxane Gay, the bestselling author of Bad Feminist, will engage in a cross-cultural dialogue with Xiao Meili, one of China’s most prominent women’s rights activists, and He Xiaopei, executive director of Pink Space Sexuality Research Center, an NGO that provides a platform for minority groups to tell their stories. This event will be moderated by Washington Post correspondent Emily Rauhala.
