International Discussion Series: The Effort of Congolese Women Against Sexual Violence

Julienne Lusenge is Director of the Fund for Congolese Women and the President of Women’s Solidarity for Peace and Intergrated Development (SOFEPADI), a coalition of 40 women’s organizations in the Eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). SOFEPADI works to defend and protect women’s rights and provide support to survivors of sexual violence by advocating for justice. Julienne became an activist in 1998 when inter-ethnic war arrived at her doorstep. After witnessing members of armed groups raping and brutalizing women in her community, Julienne was compelled to act.

Application deadline is 11:55 PM; Sunday, May 8, 2016.

Diversity Works- Implicit Bias: What is it and do I have it?

Join our Diversity Works discussion "Implicit Bias: What is it and do I have it?" with Joseph Brown. 

Unconscious biases can affect our judgments and behaviors toward some social groups. Through an implicit bias activity, we will discover the attitudes that we have all learned by virtue of living in our society and find out what we can do about them.

Bring your laptop to participate in the activity during the workshop.

More Than a Few Good Men: American Manhood and Violence Against Women

Join the Clayman Institute for a presentation by the world-renowned gender issues and sexual assault expert Dr. Jackson Katz. The talk will tackle the difficulty of encouraging men to attend programs on sex and gender issues, as well as moving past defensiveness on the subject of gender violence. One aspect that will be focused on is educating men about these issues while avoiding placing the blame on them for centuries of sexism and oppression.

Speakers will include Carolyn Lougee Chappell, Paula Findlen, Fiona Griffiths, Laura Nym Mayhall, Karen Offen, and Marilyn Yalom with opening remarks by Peter Stansky and closing remarks by James Sheehan.
