More about this training
Gender inequality has multiple expressions of violence against women that range from mild - such as discrimination and exclusion - to the most extreme, like femicide. In this training, we will explore and practice applying analytical frameworks, concepts, and tools for understanding and addressing violence against women. The training is rooted in intellectual, activist, and intersectional feminist analytical frameworks to provide a general yet profound understanding of how gender-based violence affects women and girls at a global scale. The course will also emphasize artistic forms of resistance. Participants will have the option to join a group project using artistic forms of expression to advocate for the elimination of violence against women.
Please note that there will be an emphasis on cisgendered women’s experiences of violence in Latin American countries. However, a wide variety of countries and genders will also be included. All participants will receive a copy of a participants manual or online resource drive with key terms, concepts, and handouts.
