Join us for our conversation with Lisabeth During about her recently published book, The Chastity Plot. During tells the story of chastity through time, how it has been honored and despised and how the obsession with chastity has played a powerful and disturbing role enforcing patriarchy’s double standards. Chastity is imbedded in Western culture, a myth of gender that has long been contested by feminists. We talk about how chastity has been portrayed through literature, religion, and cultural history from antiquity to the present and why it is relevant today.
