“New Rules for Radicals: How Storytellers, Opinion Shapers and Subversives Are Changing the Movement to End Gender-based Violence,” founder and creative director of The Voices and Faces Project, Anne Ream

Anne Ream, founder and creative director of The Voices and Faces Project, introduces the audience to a series of stories about gender-justice activists (almost all of them survivors of such violence themselves) who are creating measurable social change. The talk will include the story of a pastor who has developed a ministry focused on sexual violence; a group of survivors in South Africa who are challenging the African National Congress to take gender justice as seriously as they did Apartheid; and a trifecta of online activists who effectively used Facebook to drive a boycott of Facebook  — an action that ultimately led the company to change its policies on addressing anti-woman hate speech. “New Rules for Radicals” is a lecture and photography program that defies conventional wisdom about what it means to be a survivor of rape or abuse, showcasing the storytellers, opinion shapers and subversives who are radically changing the movement to end gender-based violence.
