02/10/2015 - Nothing's Neutral, Part 2: Feminist Programs Welcoming Survivors of All Genders

When: 02/10/2015 , 12:00 PM
WHAT: Web Conference / Webinar
WHERE:
INFORMATION: A gender neutral analysis of intimate partner violence, abuse, sexual assault, rape and stalking will not result in more support for LGBTQ survivors. Instead, a robust gender analysis is needed. This webinar will advance our call to action for feminist-centered anti-violence programs to welcome all survivors with meaningful support, debunk barriers to gender-integrated services, and build on understandings of sexism's role in gender violence. This webinar will make a call for men who have survived rape, sexual abuse, domestic violence, stalking and similar harms to build common cause with feminist anti-violence programs and to seek movement leadership from women and gender-queer people.
