CLASS DESCRIPTION

An understanding of gender-based oppression is vital for everyone invested in ending violence. During this training, we will discuss how sexism is a form of power-based violence, as well as the ways it intersects with other systems of oppression. We will explore examples of contemporary and historic strategies that have been used to resist sexism โ€“ including skills that can be used by individuals and communities.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES. PARTICIPANTS WILL:

  • Understand patriarchy and the various levels at which it exists
  • Identify how experiences of sexism vary depending on factors such as race, class, gender identity, age, ability, etc.
  • Gain tools for solidarity and interrupting sexism
  • Become familiar with examples of women-led community activism and resistance
