Jan Jordan and Wellington Rape Crisis

is having a fundraising evening, with the opportunity to hear one of New Zealand’s most internationally respected academic feminists, Dr Jan Jordan, talk about sexual violence. Specifically, Jan is going to talk about the ‘discovery’ of rape as a social problem in the 1970s and some of the changes and positive responses achieved in the last 40 years.

As a criminologist with vast experience in improving and assessing state responses to sexual violence – including the only study in the world to measure attrition for all those reporting rape to the state over a period of 2 and a half years – there are not too many more impressive people to listen to about sexual violence. Simply put, Jan Jordan is a legend.

So $25 buys you a glass of wine, some nibbles and an international quality speaker. For an organisation which supports survivors of sexual violence to move towards thriving after surviving.

When: Wednesday 2nd November, 5- 6.30pm

Where: ‘The Lounge’, Southern Cross, 39 Abel Smith Street.

RSVP: Spaces are limited, please RSVP by Monday 31st October to Liz at 04 801 8970 or or click here to book and pay online. ALL WELCOME.
