Sexual Culture on College Campuses: A Photo-elicitation Study of Women's Perspectives

Mar 31, 2019 10:00am ‐ Mar 31, 2019 10:30am


Description

Rates of sexual assault on college campuses have been consistent for several decades and are higher than the national average in spite of programming aimed at prevention. One of the most comprehensive policies on sexual assault was created at Antioch college over 30 years ago. A unique factor of that policy is that it was created by a group of female students. Perhaps it is time to privilege the female voice again. This poster focuses on women's perspectives of sexual culture on campus and what and how they feel needs to change.

  • Participants will learn about the dynamics of sexual culture and the role of gender hierarchy in its creation.
  • Participants will learn about ways in which rape-supportive beliefs and the myth of "gray rape" impact women's experiences of sexual culture.
  • Participants will hear from the women's perspectives about their experiences of sexual culture on college campuses and what they feel campuses need in order to create healthier sexual cultures.
