What is the history of activism against sexual violence? What kinds of strategies have survivors employed to combat it and to counter the stigma that has too often surrounded it? What kinds of narratives of resistance and protest have historically been given priority – and what voices have been left out? Today’s guests are committed to examining those questions through their involvement with an interdisciplinary research project called SHAME – an acronym for Sexual Harms and Medical Encounters – which explores the links between sexual violence, medicine, and psychiatry.
