Addressing Sexual Assault and 'Rape Culture'

Jun 28, 2016

One in five women in the U.S. will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime.  We’ll discuss what are we learning about why this is, what is being done to address this shocking statistic, and how other cultures deal with issues of consent, assault and sexuality. We’ll also explore what is meant by the phrase “rape culture” and how it might be changed.
