A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle
Sexual slavery, forced marriage, rape as a weapon of war, everyday fear and neglect: there has never been a more important time to address the global pandemic of sexual violence. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) field workers treat sexual violence survivors every day, but those who come forward for care are just the tip of the iceberg. The cycle of violence, shame, and fear continues. Join MSF for a discussion about what has been successful and what more needs to be done. Featured panelists include Maria Pilar Luna Ramirez, OBGYN and Medical Advisor for Women’s Health with MSF; Lourdes Trigueros, MD and psychiatrist and former sexual violence expert for MSF; Rebecca Ullman, Seattle-area midwife; and Aerlyn Pfeil, Portland midwife.
