We have all learned that sexual violence is about power. Although sexual violence has often been discussed as a form of power and oppression specifically exerted by men over women, this framing does not only exclude many LGBTQ+ people’s experiences, it is also inconsistent with the growing evidence we have on gender and sexual violence, which tells another, more complicated story. This workshop will move beyond the binary of male oppressor vs. female victim to find concrete strategies to meet the needs of LGBTQ and male survivors. Please come to this workshop prepared to participate in discussion, reflection, and breakout groups.
