Developing Effective Sexual Assault Preventive Interventions

Description

Stanford researchers Clea Sarnquist and Mike Baiocchi will discuss the alliance that was formed by a group of researchers at Stanford and a group of Kenyan activists, in an effort to prevent gender-based violence in the unplanned settlements of Nairobi. Responding to the dearth of empirical research about preventing violence against women and girls, their research fills critical gaps about violence prevention and gender inequality. The speakers will share experiences, tools and insights from their research and collaborations.
