In this episode, host Sarah Banet-Weiser talks with McGill researchers Carrie Rentschler and Emily Colpitts about how attitudes against gender-based violence (GBV) are changing. They examine how colleges respond to sexual violence on campus, and how student activism plays into university policy. They also discuss the intersection of social media in preventing GBV — and whether such technology can truly disrupt systems of sexual violence.
