Webinar: Dismantling Rape Culture and Empowering Consent
September 11, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
This two-hour virtual event will examine the sociocultural context of sexual violence and victim blaming. We will explore the links between objectification and sexualization of violence in the media, and how this contributes to rape myth acceptance, victim blaming, and sexual assault. Participants will gain an understanding of the negative effects of blame on sexual violence survivors, and develop strategies to interrupt victim blaming and promote positive cultural change surrounding sexual violence. Participants will also learn how to respond to and support sexual violence survivors.
