Sexualized Violence on Our Campuses

Sexualized Violence on Our Campuses

Sexualized Violence on Our Campuses

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.
