Sexism Armed: Gender Violence and the Barriers to Justice

Sunday, February 11, 2018 @ 3:40 pm - 5:10 pm

Event Navigation

Part of the 2018 Rebel Knowledge Symposium: Panel Presentation

How does sexual and gendered violence operate across different spaces? How is it experienced by those who are impacted? What are barriers to addressing gender violence and getting justice? This panel looks at the lived experiences of those who are survivors of gender violence, and discusses the various ways in which sexism is institutionalized and violence perpetuated. Drawing on diverse case studies, it will cover topics such as: violence on post-secondary campuses and rape culture; intimate partner violence, self-defence, race, and police discrimination; and intersectional and anti-carceral approaches to addressing sexual violence.
