With the rise of sexting and further means of sharing intimate images through technology, there have been growing concerns about how to address the non-consensual distribution of intimate images. Sharing intimate images can be a form of healthy sexual expression, however, the distribution of such images without consent causes harm with social, emotional, and economic impacts on survivors. Non-consensual distribution of intimate images can be used to coercively control and exert power over a person, such as an intimate partner.  

This Learning Network Virtual Forum explores non-consensual distribution of intimate images of adults in the Canadian context.  An intersectional and sex-positive lens will be used to explore its forms and how it impacts different communities. Barriers to support seeking and trauma-informed responses to support survivors will be discussed.  

This Forum is particularly relevant to gender-based violence and allied service providers, as well as human rights advocacy groups (e.g. rape crisis centers, shelters, victim services, community-based groups).  

All are welcome to virtually attend at no charge. Live participants will receive a Certificate of Participation after attending each day. Forum recordings will be emailed to those registered.
