• Re-Thinking Gender Dynamics
Traditional Inuit
women would live in
a quiet and sleepy
way with little self-
direction. Only
when their hunting
husbands returned
home to the family
igloo, would they
spring into action to
make tea and cook
full meals.
Yanomami women live
in a patriarchal and
violent Amazonian
jungle culture. If they
attempt to run away
from their home
villages they typically
are raped when seeking
refuge in neighboring
villages.
Winner of 2016 Oscar
for best documentary
short follows the
survivor of a Pakistani
Honor Killing. The
subject ultimately
forgives her father
and his brothers for
attempting to murder
her.
2015 Documentary film
exposes the frequency of
rape on US college campuses.
A nationwide conversation is
triggered as the complicity of
school administrators is
revealed who defend their
dismissal of charges
contending, “Boys will be
Boys.”

Editor's Notes

  1. Triggers a nation-wide campus conversation. Exposes administrators that intentionally covered up the frequency of rape on their campuses. (Boys will be boys)
  2. My uncle apologized to her at age 93, barely a year before he passed away.
  3. Rarely discussed it. Did not want to present myself as a victim as I launched my professional career.
  4. Conversing with a flirtatious stranger at a café – 3.4% F / 0% M -- Receiving unwanted texts/emails – F 91.5% M 75% -- Pressure to discuss sexual activities with boss/employer F 93% M 87.5%
  5. Females twice as likely to report sexual harassment. Males more often “not sure” or negative. Very few women report never being sexually harassed.
  6. Note 2/3 of Males have not. Highest # of women 4 or more times (nearly 30%)
  7. All refer to non-consensual acts. Penetration refers to vagina or anus. M/F similar other than 5% F and 25% M considered the non-consensual deep kiss to be a rape.
  8. Females have a higher incidence of rape. Describe details…
  9. 51-64 – Baby Boomers (height of feminism) Less (more Time to Get Raped)
  10. 14% More F than M believe it means partner is not interested in sex at all. 8% More M than F believe a partner can be persuaded into have sex. Mil – more partner might be interested another time. BB- More partner might be persuaded into having sex.
  11. Males and Females see this a bit differently! Certainly can lead to misunderstandings… Millennials v Baby Boomers. (More Consent Ed. For Millenials re: Mutual YES…also more Mil less of all possible)
  12. (Before “finished”) Note nearly twice as many males have been asked to end. And almost twice as many females had not.
  13. Majority answer is to “stop immediately” Larger # of M would “finish up quickly” Offering to take a break 1/3 M: ¼ F
