Supreme Stakes: Understanding Sexual Violence On Access Utah And Utah Women 20/20

PLoS Blogs

  A coalition of faculty and students at USU have come together to organize a day-long discussion of sexual violence, in order to understand the issues that informed the Kavanaugh hearings and investigation. This teach-in will happen on Tuesday, October 9 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the USU Anthropology Museum (Old Main 252) on the USU campus.

On Tuesday’s Access Utah, as a part of our UPR Original Series: Utah Women 20/20, we’ll have several of the teach-in participants in studio to discuss the issues and talk about the #MeToo movement, one year in. Our guests include Felipe Valencia, Assistant Professor of Spanish at USU, Marisela Martinez-Cola, USU Assistant Professor of Sociology, Felicia Gallegos, Outreach and Prevention Coordinator for USU's Sexual Assault and Anti-Violence Information Office, and Cana Itchuaqiyaq, PhD student in Technical Communication and Rhetoric.



We hope you’ll join the discussion as well. You can email us right now to upraccess@ and you can call us to 1.800.826.1495 during the program, Tuesday morning from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. on Utah Public Radio.
