Learning Network: Education, Research & Resources on Violence Against Women

Featured Resource:

Issue 9: May 2014

This Learning Network newsletter is on sexual violence. It positions sexual violence within the broader context of violence against women, defines what is meant by sexual violence, rape culture, and drug facilitated sexual assault.  Readers are encouraged to read statistics on sexual violence through an intersectional lens. Five courageous survivors share their experience (4 on video tape and 1 through a letter), illuminating different ways women are impacted by and cope with sexual violation. Be sure to check out the Learning Network Briefs and other online resources on the incidence and prevalence of sexual violence, promising responses to victims/survivors, training and education campaigns, and prevention initiatives.
