Gender-Based Violence on Campus: A Study Looking at Sex, Power, and Assault
Publication Date: August 03, 2021
One of the top priorities at DOJ is preventing violent crime. At OVW, one area we focus on specifically is sexual assault on campus. Jennifer Hirsch, professor of Sociomedical Sciences and steering committee member at Columbia University, and Shamus Khan, formerly professor and chair of Sociology at Columbia and now a professor at Princeton University, wrote a book titled “Sexual Citizens: A Landmark Study of Sex, Power, and Assault on Campus.” In this episode, they join Patchwork to discuss issues they found that led to sexual assaults on campuses and describe how early education may help prevent gender-based violence.
