Module Info:

Presenter: Connor Spencer
Connor Spencer is a Montreal-based organizer and anti-sexual violence advocate that believes greatly in
treating effective policy development as a first step to change, the power of direct action, and the need
for greater understandings of solidarity and support within our communities. Formerly the Director of
Mobilization and Vice-Chair for the National OurTurn Committee, she now is working with activists
across Canada to create a new organization that supports the grassroots work happening on Canadian
campuses. Her own work right now focuses on addressing a culture of predatory professors and student
leaders on campuses.
In the wake of #MeToo and the passing of provincial legislation mandating the creation on sexual
violence policies, a spotlight has been shone on Canadian university campuses. The media has been
identifying the efforts made by women and non-binary students to address a culture of violence that
exists within academia. Does rape culture that exists on our campuses? Is sexual violence simply part of
a larger system of violence within society and if so, how can this violence be stopped? This talk will
discuss rape culture, what it looks like, and what work students are doing across the country to address it
