Dear Colleagues and Students,

Please join us for a series of timely events in recognition of International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and 16 days of activism against gender-based violence (see attached flyer for details).

We've heard from many of you about the stress and need for community in the face of persistent incidents of hate-based violence, including gender-based and sexual violence. You may have seen the article in the Chronicle<> which advocates for treating "sexual violence and harassment as systemic, intellectually rigorous issues, worthy of faculty research and classroom time." Join us in taking up this important call as a community of scholars, teachers, students, and practitioners.

Food and refreshments will be served:

  *   27 November 3pm, Ustler Hall - Panel discussion: "Ending Violence Against Women in Our Communities."
  *   5 December 6pm, Ustler Hall - Screening of the documentary, Anita: Speaking Truth to Power, with a facilitated discussion.
  *   10 December 3:30pm, Ustler Hall - World Human Rights Day: Public Lecture by Dr. Maddy Coy, "Violence Against Women in a Human Rights Framework."
Beginning November 12th, come into the Ustler Hall lobby during business hours, and add your voice to the #HearMeToo board!

Please distribute this invitation and attached flyer to your networks. I hope you will attend, and bring your friends and colleagues.
