    Culture of Gendered Violence

    This training offers an exploration of the historical and cultural causes of violence against women. We will examine how it is a logical, though completely intolerable, extension of a firmly entrenched misogynist worldview, imposed upon women, children and men over thousands of years. We will explore how this violence is used to help to maintain patriarchy, male dominance and oppressive stereotypes.
