Violence and Resistance: Working Together to Transform the Culture of Violence and Rape

Sold Out - No Registrations at the door.

In this interactive workshop we will address our collective work to resist and transform Rape Culture. We will address the structural oppressions that create the conditions for this on going oppression, and consider creative responses to both the people who are victimized by assault, and the people who commit these assaults. This work is informed by bell hooks’ ideas that “feminism is for everybody” and will address how patriarchy is complex and doesn’t serve many men, especially those in marginalized locations, as well as women and gender non conforming people. We will discuss ethical stances for this work that hold the people who have suffered assault at the centre, alongside a call to account, responsibility and compassionate response to people who enact violence.

This professional development workshop will be facilitated by Vikki Reynolds, Ph.D, R.C.C.
