Sexual violence is an issues that impacts everyone, including men. While they may not often speak out about their roles and experiences with sexual assault, men have a lot to say. From processing the unspoken narratives of men and boys who experience sexual assault to acknowledging astounding numbers of men who commit acts of violence and unearthing the countless men who stand up against rape culture, men's experiences with this issue are often thought of as "The Elephant in the Room."
Please join us on Thursday, April 18 at 6:30pm in Rockefeller 003 for a panel discussion that will address men's experiences as sexual assault survivors, perpetrators, and allies. You will hear a variety of perspectives from Dartmouth men, including:
o Kip Dooley 12' – Dartmouth Alum and former Dartmouth Men's Lacrosse player
o David Sayet 13' – President of Men's Forum
o Peter W. Travis, PhD. – Dartmouth Professor, "The Masculine Mystique"
o Mark Hiatt, PhD. – Dick's House Staff Psychologist, Counseling and Human Development
As a part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month and in collaboration with The CGSE Men's Project and Student Health Promotion and Wellness, "The Elephant in the Room" seeks to add male perspective and voice to the ever-important discussion on ending sexual violence at Dartmouth College and beyond.
