Description

Sexual assault against Women of Color has historically been an attack against not only their identities as women, but also their racial identity. Research indicates that Women of Color are often at elevated risks for sexual assault and that their experience of sexual assault is usually made more complex by factors such as race, socioeconomic status, and lack of culturally appropriate services. This presentation will connect the historical sexual assault of Women of Color and its implications for how society responds to Women of Color survivors today.
