Workshop Summary

Part One: Rape Culture & Our Realities

Part One aims to build foundational knowledge about rape culture and develop the participants’ ability to understand and put sexualized violence into our current socio-cultural context.

Learning outcomes:

  • Develop a deeper understanding of sexualized violence and rape culture and how they show up in our society and in our work
  • Unpack the impacts of rape culture on survivors and our diverse realities
  • Explore how we can resist rape culture in our lives and in our work

Part Two: Feminist Support Skills

Part Two will lay the basics of feminist support skills and explore how participants can apply what they have learned in Part I to provide emotional support to survivors in their lives.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand the principles of feminist support and the five pillars of emotional support and identify how we may already be using feminist support skills
  • Identify the impacts of sexualized violence on survivors and barriers they may face in accessing support
  • Practice using feminist support skills through role-playing
