Transforming Cultures: A Trans-Atlantic Conversation about Gender-Based Violence

We've recently seen unprecedented attention to cultures that support or challenge gender-based violence: disclosures about violence and abuse by Harvey Weinstein and others; the #MeToo and #TimesUp campaigns; plans to outlaw 'upskirting'; Dr Christine Ford's accusations about Judge Brett Kavanaugh, to name just a few.

From 1700-1830 on Wednesday 24 October, in Sandyford 210, Northumbria University will host a seminar which will reflect on these developments in the UK and the US and is delighted to welcome two eminent scholars/activists/practitioners: Professor Susan Marine, Merrimack College, US will speak about how the Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearings are shaping discourse about sexual violence in high school and college; and Ms Cullagh Warnock, expert on gender-based violence, will talk about the role of specialist women's organisations in improving services and policy around gender-based violence.
