This workshop will help you address everyday sexism and attitudes that contribute to gender-based violence.

Being an active bystander sends a message that violence against women is everyone’s business and that everyone has a positive role to play in eliminating it. Additionally, you will explore the causes, prevalence, and impact of domestic violence, sexual harassment, and other forms of violence against women.
