With Masha Gessen and Aja Monet
In conversation with Linda Gordon
In conjunction with Measure for Measure
“Who will believe thee?” In Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, Isabel threatens to reveal the sexual advances of Angelo, who sits in control of both the government and her brother’s life. Journalist Masha Gessen, poet Aja Monet, and historian Linda Gordon discuss the truth of women’s lived experiences in the public sphere. What happens when power is used to silence and undermine truth?
