Disrupting the Culture of Online Sexual Violence

April 14, 2023
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Online Event

Sexual violence online isn't just a "women's issue." Even though female identifying students historically experience higher rates of harm, emerging data shows abuse targeting male-identifying students is on the rise. What does abuse in online spaces look like, how do different genders experience it, and how can we be part of the solution?
