Date rape: Not a figment of our imaginations

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In recent years, a new movement against sexual assault has taken off across campuses and in the streets: from Columbia University, to the streets of Toronto, to neighborhoods in India and elsewhere, a new generation of activists is organizing to end the silence and fight for a world free of victim-blaming, slut-shaming and sexual assault. This talk will examine the roots of sexual assault and how we can build the fight against it.

Recommended Books Available in the Haymarket Room:
