December 5, 2016 at 11:30am – Shifting the Paradigm from Rape Culture to Consent Culture

We live in a society of rape culture where victims are blamed and sexual violence and harassment have become normalized. Our culture emits conscious and unconscious messages about choice, gender, and power that we accept as inevitable, yet they are expressions of values and attitudes that can change.

Less than half of all rapes are actually reported and only three percent of rapists spend even a day in jail. Let’s change these statistics.

Join us to learn about state policies and advocacy, campus efforts, and national media initiatives that are working to combat rape culture. Together, we can become informed advocates, parents, citizens, and philanthropists with  the tools to spark change.

With Speakers:

Michelle Carroll 

Campus Coordinator, New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault

Emma Gray 

Executive Women’s Editor, Huffington Post

Joanne Zannoni 

Executive Director, New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault  

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP is required to miriam@jewishwomenny.org or (212) 836-1268.

Interested in learning more and possibly joining JWFNY’s Israel Grants Committee?
Join us after the event from 1:30 – 2:30 PM to see how you can make a difference in the lives of women and girls.
