History in the News:
Oregon’s Own History of Sexual Violence and Harassment
Thursday, November 16, 5:30-7:00 pm
Willamette Heritage Center | 1313 Mill St SE, Salem, OR
Millions of people have recently disclosed their experiences of sexual harassment and assault on social media. Oregon is no exception.
This roundtable puts current conversations about sexual harassment and assault in historical perspective. Are we at a pivotal moment in changing the cultural attitudes and workplace practices that sustain such abuse? What has changed, and not changed? Why have efforts to expose and prevent harassment and assault faltered or met resistance in the past? Please join us for conversation with experts in politics, policy, and the law.
History in the News is free and open to the public.
Food and drink will be available for purchase from Taproot Lounge & Café.
This program is made possible in part by a grant from Oregon Humanities (OH), a statewide nonprofit organization and an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, which funds OH’s grant program.
History in the News is sponsored by KMUZ Community Radio, and presented in partnership with Salem City Club.
