Challenging Sexism

– There is power in naming, exposing sexism and then joining together to challenge and respond to sexism –

Sexism is built into the institutional structures of a culture, and persists because it is accepted and practiced in the everyday by us all.  Therefore, it is important to consider how to expose and challenge sexism and then offer alternative practices for relating, communicating and presenting information.

This workshop creates individual and collective opportunities for awareness-raising and learning about gender equality, sexism and its links to men’s violence against women. It is a reflective space for participants to review their thinking, their actions, their responses to and engagement with gender and violence prevention.

This workshop names and explores how sexism is present, perpetuated and marketed in our community, its impact on us and our relationships, and its link to men’s violence against women.

Designed for workers from diverse sectors including: health, community, education, state and local government, not for profit agencies, social policy, workplace and justice.
