They Were Asking For It: Transforming Rape Culture and Ending Victim Blame
February 2, 2017 @ 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 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.
