Third Anti-Rape Culture Event and Coalition Meeting: 3/5 at Freedom Hall! (INVITE OTHERS AND SPREAD THE WORD)
On January 29th, 2013, Feminist Resistance held an initial discussion and meeting with a number of other groups and individuals to organize a future event against rape culture. At the discussion, we spoke about the definition and manifestations of rape culture, how to address rape culture with intersectional feminism, and the politics behind liberation from rape culture. We met again on February 19, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. to continue our conversations and to get to know each other better politically and personally.
This is the beginning of a potential new coalition around this issue and this is the beginning of process of political discussions about rape culture.
Possible topics of conversation on the agenda: the media and its connections to rape culture, reproductive justice and access and rape culture, colonialism and imperialism and indigenous resistance and rape culture, military culture and the military industrial complex and rape culture.
All are welcome to attend. Please spread the word to those you think would be interested in joining this political conversation about rape culture.
In the future, the new coalition around this issue will have its own contact information and social media profiles. This is NOT Feminist Resistance’s event. But do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com or here on the facebook page with any questions or concerns!
