Transforming a Rape Culture: Campaigning to End Sexual Violence

8 October 2012 (9am - 4:30pm)
Rape Crisis Scotland
Thistle Hotel, Cambridge Street, Glasgow

Research reveals alarmingly high levels of women blaming attitudes to rape. The Haven’s ‘Wake Up to Rape’ report in 2010, based on interviews with over 1,000 people, found that more than half held victims responsible in some circumstances. Twenty eight percent of those interviewed believed that “provocative” dress meant that women were to some extent responsible.

Prevention campaigns on rape have historically been aimed at what women can do to prevent or avoid rape. Recent years have seen a welcome shift to highlighting the need for a change in public attitudes and to focus on perpetrators and potential perpetrators.

This conference will provide an opportunity to hear more about different campaigns on sexual violence, and consider further action in this area.
