April 25: Victim-blaming sexual assault presentation at CLC

In recognition of April’s designation as Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Month, the College of Lake County is holding a workshop on “Victim-Blaming: From Argument to Education” on Wednesday, April 25 from 1-2:30 p.m. It will be presented by Gail Stern of Catharsis Productions in room C005, the C Wing Auditorium, and is free and open to the public.

Stern is an educator and curriculum director with nearly 20 years of experience in violence prevention education and advocacy. She is the co-author and co-producer of the non-stranger rape prevention program, “Sex Signals,” which is presented at colleges, universities and military bases nationwide.

“Stern and her co-workers at Catharsis take a new approach to a tough issue, focusing not just on crime statistics and legal procedures but on issues of gender, relationships and social mores,” said CLC Women’s Center director Teresa Aguinaldo. “Stern presented to an audience of 400 educators and public employees at CLC last fall, and ‘Victim-Blaming’ promises to be a very educational, thought-provoking and dynamic program.”

This event is being co-sponsored by the CLC Women’s Center and the Gender and Sexuality Studies department. For more information, call the Women’s Center at (847) 543-2771.
