On Wednesday, September 11th the McMaster University Anti-Violence Network will be hosting two events to support Take Back the Night in Hamilton.
From 11am to 2pm there will be activities and awareness in the McMaster Student Union Centre (MUSC) Atrium. All are welcome! Come by to chat and enjoy the free cotton candy.
At 1:30 AVN will be hosting a workshop, Interrupting Rape Culture in Convocation Hall (University Hall 2nd Floor):
- Learn about the systemic causes of violence against women and learn how to FIGHT BACK against rape culture! Discuss how the examples that we hear in the media aren’t isolated cases, but instead point to a culture that says it’s okay for women to be shamed, harmed, assaulted and blamed experience violence, and be victim-blamed.
- The workshop will be facilitated by IT’S TIME to End Violence Against Women on Campus and feature panelists from Hollaback! Hamilton, the White Ribbon Campaign and Draw the Line.
- This workshop is free, but space is limited! Please REGISTER for the workshop by emailing Catherine Oakleaf, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 905 525 9140 x20330. Please contact Catherine for information about the accessible entrance to Convocation Hall.
- All genders welcome!
