Addressing Rape Culture on College Campuses

From 2017 through 2020 we are conducting an important three-year project funded by Status of Women Canada addressing the issue of rape culture. Building on the experience of our previous Cyberviolence Prevention project, we are working with colleges/CEGEPs to develop policy solutions, pedagogical strategies and knowledge mobilization approaches that respond to this problem.

Three community leaders — Dr. Shanly DixonDr. Eileen Kerwin-Jones, and Brenda Lamb — are promoting the project at a national level through a pan-Canadian network of 150 women leaders working on a variety of related projects.

On August 9, 2017 Status of Women Canada Minister Maryam Monsef made a major announcement in our building that included funding for the project. Click here for the full text of the Minister’s announcement.
