Christina Hoff Sommers is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and host of the popular online series, The Factual Feminist. In this Conversation, Sommers reflects on the Google memo and argues that the suppression of free speech at universities now is spilling over into other parts of American life. Sommers also returns to the subject of GamerGate,the backlash against political correctness by video game enthusiasts, and describes how that movement has fared in an era of online trolling in American politics. Highlighting the decline in free speech on one hand and norms of civility on the other, Sommers calls for an alliance of fair-minded liberals and conservativesto restore civic education and respect for the First Amendment and the Bill of Rights.”
