“They were asking for it”: Rape Culture and Victim Blame
July 20, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
This three hour training will examine the sociocultural context of sexual violence and victim blame. We will explore
the links between objectification and the sexualization of violence in the media, and how this contributes to rape myth acceptance, victim blame, and sexual assault. Participants will gain an understanding of the negative effects of blame on sexual assault survivors, and develop strategies to interrupt victim blame and promote positive cultural change surrounding sexual violence.
