Sexualized Violence on Our Campuses

How We Live Matters. What is required to create a cultural shift away from misogyny, sexism and sexualized violence?

The Dalhousie Dentistry Gentlemen's Facebook page and the Saint Mary's University Rape Chant incidents tell us universities need an integrated approach to respond to sexualized violence. Panelists from Halifax universities will discuss underlying systemic causes of this culture of gender-based violence and proactive approaches to change.

The Panel:
Dr. Françoise Baylis, Professor, Canada Research Chair in Bioethics and Philosophy, Dalhousie University
Dr. Jody Clarke, Academic Dean, Atlantic School of Theology
Dr. Rylan Higgins, Professor, Anthropology, Saint Mary's University
Dr. Marnina Gonick, Canada Research Chair in Gender, Mount Saint Vincent University
Dr. Jayne Wark, Professor Art History and Critical Studies, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design
