‘White Tears, Brown Scars’ : UTS book launch featuring author, Ruby Hamad

30 October, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Join us for the UTS launch of this important and powerful book which deconstructs and contextualises the dynamic between white women and women of colour. It explores questions like – How did the Angry Brown Woman stereotype come about? Why is the Damsel in Distress always white? What do both of these stereotypes have to do with the way our society developed? What happens when racism and sexism collide? Ruby Hamad provides some confronting answers.
