International Women's Day Public Lecture by Dr Laura Walton-Williams
A year on from her #ItsNotOkay public lecture, Dr Laura Walton-Williams would like to continue to challenge bias and promote gender equality. Awareness of sexual abuse and sexual violence has increased significantly over the past few years but a report published in December 2018 indicates that public perceptions of the victims and perpetrators of these type of offences continue to be skewed by bias and gender stereotyping. This public lecture will explore how misconceptions relating to gender impact on the reporting and prosecution of sexual offences.
