Rape culture is finally getting its moment in the spotlight. Canadians have seen an unprecedented level of discussion about sexual violence in the mainstream media. Breaking the silence on sexual violence is important, but it’s not enough. People need to act.
In this interactive presentation, feminist public educator Julie S. Lalonde will outline the reality of sexual violence in Canada and give participants the tools to intervene safely and effectively.
