Women's Rights are Human Rights

We are in the midst of an epidemic – an epidemic of violence and discrimination against women, and it has gotten worse during the pandemic.  Every nine seconds, a woman in the US is assaulted or beaten.  There are 5.3 million incidents of intimate partner violence each year.

This program raises awareness about the situation facing women and girls globally, nationally, and in Northfield, and presents opportunities to take action.

Sponsored by World Without Genocide at Mitchell Hamline School of Law. Speakers include Executive Director Dr. Ellen Kennedy and students Abby Banks (Carleton College), Priscilla Hagerman (University of Minnesota), and Tika Khachatryan (St. Olaf College).
