 Save the Date for "Hush... It's All in the Past": Exploring the Silenced Narratives around Conflict-Related Sexual Violence in Asia

Everybody is welcome on October 6 from 4 - 6 PM (PST). This webinar, hosted by the Institute of Asian Research, aims to stimulate conversation around conflict-related "sexual violence" as a way to remind ourselves that "sexual violence" remains a major issue that is often overlooked. We hope to inspire people to educate themselves and join in the movement in part to prevent "sexual violence" perpetrated by the state.
