Proceedings

"The Role of Education in Preventing Gender-based Violence"
Proceedings from the Inter-American Forum
San Jose, Costa Rica
February 7-8, 2002
The Institute and our partner, the Universidad de Costa Rica's Center for Research in Women's Studies, brought together 26 participants from 10 countries around the Americas to begin an ongoing dialogue about gender violence. The goal of the Forum was to bring together people who weren't part of the "usual crowd" at international gatherings, but rather to link practitioners and researchers and to reach across boundaries of country and language to focus on how education can support the elimination of gender violence.

Honoring the International Day Against Violence Against Women: Introduction
The Gender, Diversities & Technology Institute, in recognition of the International Day Against Violence Against Women, hosted a panel discussion on challenges and solutions. Moderated by Sundra Flansburg, director of the WEEA Equity Resource Center, the panel shared experiences and new issues emerging within gendered violence efforts. Penninah Ogada, relating to our emerging work in Kenya, expanded on the existing definition of gendered violence to include such issues as social ostracization and the challenges facing young women moving from rural areas to universities. Terri Boyer Tillbrook discussed the emerging role of men within the violence prevention movement. Gabriella Canepa, drawing from the Building Bridges project for Latinas/os, described the experience and aftermath of rape and the lack of comprehensive laws and services to protect immigrant girls and women. Sundra Flansburg described the GDI's work with the University of Costa Rica as we developed the Inter-American Forum on Gendered Violence. The comments from the session will be compiled and placed on the website.
