Dr. Ruth Westheimer

Ruth Westheimer, better known as Dr. Ruth, is an American sex therapist, media personality, and author. The New York Times described her as a “Sorbonne-trained psychologist who became a kind of cultural icon in the 1980s... She ushered in the new age of freer, franker talk about sex on radio and television - and was endlessly parodied for her limitless enthusiasm and for having an accent only a psychologist could have.”

Join the NYU Brademas Center in welcoming Dr. Ruth in conversation with Jonathan Capehart, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and editorial board member at The Washington Post, where they will discuss her life achievements, sex, and how Trump made her break her political silence.

This Skirball Talk is free and open to the public. Please note that this program may be filmed and/or photographed.
