Presentation Themes
"Social justice endeavors seek to reduce and eliminate social inequities (e.g., sexism, racism, ethnocentrism, heterosexism, classism, ageism, ableism, etc.) This presentation will focus on the integration of social justice perspectives to an innovative approach to date rape prevention training created at the University of Kentucky by a collaborative team of faculty and graduate students. Whereas more traditional approaches to date rape prevention have focused on teaching women how to protect themselves, our date rape prevention program used social justice perspectives to help participants:
(a) become knowledgeable about the cultural context in which rape takes place,
(b) become aware of how gender-role socialization practices and socialization of societal rape myths support
(c) challenge their internalized beliefs about power-based relationships between women and men and about
      rape myths,
(d) challenge victim-blaming attitudes in self and others,
(e) change misperceptions of rape and of what constitutes sexual interest and consent, and
(f) transform male privilege into men becoming allies to reduce the occurrence of rape.
This presentation will explore the theoretical applications of social justice perspectives to date rape prevention interventions, the research outcomes of this approach, and an opportunity for attendees to see and participate in a sample intervention." Pamela Remer, March 2009
