Let's Talk About Sex - A Conversation about Sex, Power, And Assault

Let's Talk About Sex - A Conversation about Sex, Power, And Assault

Sexual Citizens is based on years of research interviewing and observing college life – with students of different races, genders, sexual orientations, and socio-economic backgrounds. Hirsch and Khan’s landmark study reveals the social ecosystem that makes sexual assault so predictable, explaining how physical spaces, alcohol, peer groups, and cultural norms influence young people’s experiences and interpretations of both sex and sexual assault.

You are invited to be part of a campus effort built on empathy and hope. Together, we can do something about sexual violence at UNL.  Learn how we can come together and address the problem including learning about power imbalance and inequity.
