The Culture Where No One is Culturally Competent: The Effects of Rape Culture on Children

Jennifer Krol will speak about how rape culture is instilled in girls as early as pre-elementary school, through micro aggressions that we don’t even realize we are perpetrating. Yet being more aware of these micro aggressions, changing the way we interact with others, and pushing for a more comprehensive sex education system in our schools, are some steps we can take to create a world without rape culture or sexual violence.
