The Ministry of Women’s Affairs invites you to the following presentation:
**CHALLENGING THE MYTHS: CHANGING ATTITUDES TOWARDS SEXUAL VIOLENCE**
The principal researchers who conducted the work streams for the recently completed sexual violence studies - Strong and Safe Communities – Effective Interventions for Adult Victim/Survivors of Sexual Violence - will present a brief overview of the methods used before summarising key findings from the research.
This material will be organised around the ways in which the findings challenge widely held myths about rape/sexual violence, and will be used as a base for outlining some of the important implications arising from this research project.
