Christin Bowman is a doctoral candidate in Critical Social Psychology at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. Her research examines the ways the institution of heterosexuality affects how women and girls live their lives and make meaning of their experiences. Specifically, she studies women’s sexuality including the following: women’s masturbation; adolescent sexuality and relationships; masculinity and femininity ideologies; and the sexualization of women and girls in society. Under the mentorship of Dr. Deborah Tolman, Christin has also written about sexual embodiment and engaging young women in feminist activism. She is also a research blogger and editor for the SPARK movement, which aims to push back against the sexualization of girls and women in the media and “take sexy back.”
