Event description

Description

Trolling, slut-shaming, cat-calling and ‘banter’? Sexism and sexual harassment have been reported to be on the rise on university campuses. These are distressing issues which affect both men and women, but researchers are developing new models for challenging sexism and sexual violence – both on campus and in the night-time economy of bars and clubs.

This event, organised by the Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology (Dr Zoe Alker and Dr Andrew Davies, History), features three highly-distinguished visiting speakers: Laura Bates (author of Everyday Sexism and Guardian contributor), Dr Vanita Sundaram (University of York, co-author of a pioneering report on ‘lad cultures’ in higher education) and Stuart Taylor (Liverpool John Moores University, co-author of an important new study of sexual violence and attitudes towards consent among students). Our aim is to raise awareness of campus-based sexism, but also importantly to engage with students to discover ways to tackle it.

The event is free, but due to being in high demand, tickets are essential.

For further information please contact Dr Zoe Alker (Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology Zoealker@liverpool.ac.uk.
