#MeToo @ K-State
Union 207, 2:00-2:40pm (Session Period 1)
#MeToo @ K-State seeks to challenge the harmful myths and misconceptions about sexual violence that make it easier for perpetrators to get away with crimes and harder for survivors to be believed. Participants will learn about the unlikelihood of false reports, how rape culture is embedded in our everyday lives, how trauma affects the brain, and ultimately walk away with knowledge on how we as K-State Wildcats can be effective in creating culture change.
