It uses media outlets, primarily in popular culture, to analyze the connection between gender roles in the media and violence. 2. Drug Facilitated Rape: This provides an overview of drug facilitated rape by providing examples of the multiple forms of drugs used in rape cases. It also includes statistical information from LV Metro and The Rape Crisis Center of Southern Nevada. 3.

Presentation Topics 4. Understanding "No": The presentation is interactive and gives scenarios in which the audience will judge whether the sexual act was consensual or by force. Also discusses dating violence & healthy relationships. 5. Same Sex Violence: This presentation goes over the lack of adequate resources available to LGBT victims of violence and also addresses misconceptions about violence in the LGBT community. 6. “Why do they stay?”: This is an interactive game formatted presentation and is best suited for groups of no more than 15.
