Women’s Centre hosts full-day screening of Sexual Violence Forum Feb 28

The Northwestern Ontario Women’s Centre would like to share with you some information on an upcoming sexual violence forum.

 

The Learning Network is presenting a one day sexual violence forum:

What Really Informs Consent?

In this one-day forum, we discuss the role of marginalization, power imbalances, privilege and accompanying notions of entitlement, and the many ways in which social disparities inform “consent” and patterns of sexual violence. Join us for a day full of dynamic speakers, interaction, and arts-based performance. This session is free and will be live-streamed across Canada on February 28th from 8:30am-4:00pm. If you are interested, there are two ways to take it in:
