Professor Strips Naked During Lecture: Empowering Women to Expose their Genitals to Strangers

A female professor stripped completely naked during a lecture in front of students at a college, trying to push the left’s narrative that flaunting your sexuality for the world to see is empowering.

Victoria Bateman is a professor at Cambridge. Her website describes her as follows: “I am a Director of Studies, Fellow and College Lecturer in Economics at Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge, and have written regular commentary for publications such as UnHerd, CapX and Bloomberg View.”

During a lecture at a prestigious university, Bateman stripped down, getting naked for all to see. Instead of reprimanding her, the University of Cambridge has chosen to stand by her while their reputation takes a hit.

Bateman claims that what she does is both “art” and a way to promote female empowerment.

According to reporting from Tap Haps: “Bateman garnered international attention when she gave an 18+ nude lecture to protest the United Kingdom withdrawing from the European Union. After seeing her notoriety skyrocket, Bateman decided to use her naked body as an instrument in many of her political lectures, including her support for abortion with the slogan “my body my choice.'”

Of course, Bateman has received a lot of negative responses to her stunts, but that apparently proves her point, according to her. She claims that exposing her completely naked body to a crowd of students is somehow a great “feminist” argument.

If you want to see one of these disturbing lectures (Warning: Graphic video), she posted it here on her Twitter page.

“Women’s bodies are one of the big battlegrounds we face today, whether in terms of women’s access to birth control, sex workers’ rights or clothing, including burka bans,” Bateman said in an interview with Inside Higher Ed. “By covering up the body, these problems don’t go away. Instead, we fail to address them because we think of the body as something that’s embarrassing and not to be talked about in polite — or academic — company.”

When asked about her provocative and uncomfortable methods, she claims that it is actually empowering for women to use their bodies to manipulate people, especially in regards to her political statements and lectures.

“The relevant question is not ‘Why use your naked body?’ but ‘Why not use your naked body?’ Reversing the question in this way helps to reveal people’s inner thoughts or presumptions about women’s bodies: that when a woman shows her body it devalues her worth or decreases the respect people have for her,” Bateman said.

The feminist “professor” has received a lot of negative reactions on social media, but many on the left have embraced her and her message nonetheless.

If a man had done this, he would likely be in jail. But men don’t have the privilege in this society, women — and more specifically, feminists — do. Bateman is able to avoid the consequences that others would be receiving solely based on that fact. Whether the attendees of her lectures and classes want to or not, they are forced to look at her naked body.
