International Women’s Day at UTS

8 March, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A series of headlines about violence against women which victim blames. They have been edited to blame the perpetrator instead.

Join us for a discussion on how bystander intervention can help address sexual harassment and violence against women, in honour of International Women’s Day. The theme of our event is: Stand Up and Speak Out! Mobilising a community of active, ethical bystanders.

Our keynote speaker is Jane Gilmore, journalist and creator of the FixedIt project (which corrects media reports of male violence against women). Jane’s address will be followed by a panel of UTS experts discussing bystander intervention and how university communities can respond to this challenge.

Please visit our Eventbrite page to register.

All are welcome!
