When Bad People Do Good Things: From Christopher Columbus to Woody Allen
What is our responsibility as good feminists and citizens of the world to live out our morals and ethics? Do we reject all of the creative works of people who act badly? Our September 16, 2020 Salon discussion will address such questions as: Are we “bad” if we still listen to music and watch films of people like Michael Jackson, Woody Allen, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey (and the list goes on and on)? Do we need to justify our actions? What lessons have we learned from their “wrongs?” Join us on Wednesday, September 16 at 7:30 pm for a lively discussion.
