Sexual Violence on College Campuses

An Interactive, Multimedia Presentation

Stephanie Gilmore, Feminist Activist and Educator

This interactive, multimedia presentation examines rape culture on college campuses, using up-to-the-minute examples of activism among students, expert opinion, and observational analysis to explore how students can and do confront sexual violence against women, students of color, and LGBT student. Most notably, this presentation shows how students have mobilized in the past and how they are engaging in vital and important activism to un-learn rape culture and create college communities that marginalize violence in all forms.
