WNGE Webinar-Enculturated Violence- Every Day and Everywhere- and Feminist Responses

Wed, Oct 15, 2014 starting at 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM
 

WNGE Webinar Series: Violence Against Women and Girls: Continuing Conversations 

Part Three:  Enculturated Violence Every Day and Everywhere-and the Feminist
 
For many women and girls, the most intimate places are the least safe. This session will focus on understanding VAW/G perpetrated in homes and in social and workplace settings, from domestic violence to date rape to sexual harassment to military sexual assaults:
  • One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.
  • An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year.
  • 85% of domestic violence victims are women.
  • Historically, women and girls have been most often victimized by someone they knew.
  • Most cases of domestic violence are never reported to the police.
  • While 1 in 6 civilian women experience sexual assault, for military women it is approximately 1 in 3.

We will end the conversation series by reviewing the role of feminists in addressing the problem and creating change and discussing possible actions going forward.

When: Wednesday, October 15th
Time: 9 AM - 10:30 AM

Space is limited.
