Dismantling Rape Culture Conference
Tuesday, April 14, 2009
Sponsored by The Women's Center at The University of Vermont

The conference's mission is to uncover various aspects and systems of our society that perpetuate and maintain oppression, which sustains rape culture. Rape culture is a culture in which rape and sexual violence are pervasive. Rape culture exists when prevalent attitudes, norms, practices and media condone, normalize, excuse and encourage sexual violence. This powerful conference will aim to create an awareness of how the UVM campus and greater societal culture supports violence, as well as a better understanding of how individuals have the power and responsibility to transform it. Free and open to the UVM and local communities. To register for the conference online, please go to www.uvm.edu/~women/drcc.html
