  19. 22. What is a bystander? <ul><ul><li>Someone who sees or hears something that either directly or indirectly could lead to an act of IPV </li></ul></ul>
  20. 23. Class Activity
  21. 24. It’s free time in class and your students are pretending to be in an airplane. You overhear one of the girls saying she wants to be a co-pilot with one of the boys. Then you hear one of the boys say “only boys are pilots, girls have to be flight attendants.” Airplane Scenario
  22. 25. Activity <ul><li>How does this scenario contribute to a rape culture? </li></ul><ul><li>Come up with 3 different ways in which you would intervene and/or respond to this scenario. </li></ul>
  23. 26. While teaching class, several of the boys continually raise their hands to participate. While it is good that they are participating, you notice that if you call on one of the girls to respond, any time a girl speaks, one of the boys talks over her. Talking in Class Scenario
  24. 27. Activity <ul><li>How does this scenario contribute to a rape culture? </li></ul><ul><li>Come up with 3 different ways in which you would intervene and/or respond to this scenario. </li></ul>
  25. 28. <ul><li>Cultural factors and the environment LITERALLY can stop rape. </li></ul><ul><li>Someone doesn’t just start raping at 13 for no reason – something has gotten them there. </li></ul><ul><li>Important not just for issues of sexism, but ALL forms of oppression, i.e. homophobia, racism, and ablism. </li></ul>
  26. 29. <ul><li>Factors that increase a bystanders willingness to intervene </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Bystander is able to recognize that there is a problem </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>They are directly asked to intervene </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The perceived costs are lower than the perceived benefits </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>They have role models that use this method and the social pressure is encouraging them to intervene </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>They feel confident in their skills to intervene </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Diffusion of responsibility – in other words the less people there are the more likely they can be to intervene – studies show that the more bystanders, the slower one is to act because they think someone else will intervene. </li></ul></ul>
  27. 30. <ul><li>Speak Up! Intervene </li></ul><ul><li>Join a student organization like The Movement or Men Against Rape & Sexism </li></ul><ul><li>Take sexist language and jokes seriously </li></ul><ul><li>It IS your business </li></ul><ul><li>WC Hotline Training </li></ul><ul><li>Hold perpetrators accountable </li></ul><ul><li>Talk to family/friends about these issues </li></ul><ul><li>Train your students to be bystander </li></ul><ul><li>Facebook - Awareness </li></ul><ul><li>Talk to/teach your students about sexism and other forms of oppression </li></ul>
