Ekstrom Library, Room W104

Join us for a panel discussion on the book Hating Girls, which is a collection of cutting-edge essays addressing the pervasive problem of misogyny from an intersectional framework, particularly focused on identities of gender, race, class, sexuality, and religion.

Meet the authors, who are scholars, activist reformers, and social justice practitioners. They offer multiple perspectives of the misogyny that dominates our culture providing both macro-views as well as case studies in the United States.

Spiritual Healing from Sexual Violence: An Intersectional Guide is a collection of essays from survivors, scholars, activist reformers, spiritual leaders, and social justice practitioners offering numerous intersectional and culturally competent options for women, men, and non-binary conforming adults to explore and to create their own safe healing conditions and establish pathways for recovery. These chapters provide many culturally unique survival stories that can raise awareness of the issues involved in healing after sexual assault while influencing society’s values and belief systems that currently hinder victim’s ability to heal. In a classroom setting, these chapters deliver both the culturally grounded knowledge and the skill sets necessary for recovery.
