Wendy McElroy speaking in Springfield, Illinois, September 16, 2006

McElroy is the author of the book Rape Culture Hysteria, in which she contends that rape culture is a result of popular hysteria to the disadvantage of men, and in particular, white men.[2]

In November 2014, McElroy was scheduled to debate Jessica Valenti at a Brown University Janus Forum debate on "How Should Colleges Handle Sexual Assault?". Before the debate, Brown President Christina Paxson sent out a campus-wide e-mail saying she disagreed with McElroy's views. Also, Paxson setup an alternative event at the same time.[3][4] The actions of Brown students and Paxson were criticized by various commentators.[5][6][7]
