        A web conference on preventing violence against women
        Date: Thursday, March 29, 2007 2:00-3:30 pm EST (11:00 am – 12:30 pm PST)

        Presenters: Larry Cohen, Rachel Davis, Greta Tubbesing Prevention Institute.

        Host: David Lee, Prevention Connection

        Details & background

        Following recent school shootings in which girls were specifically targeted, the primary response was to call for school safety generally without attention to the gender of the victims or the implications. In the wake of announcements for OJ Simpson’s book on how he would have committed murder, there was an outcry and plans were scrapped. But did we miss an opportunity to bring attention to the need for prevention? Working from two background readings in reaction to these events, this web conference will examine how we can be better prepared to advance a prevention frame through the media in light of public events in violence against women and girls. We will share input and recommendations from the recent Prevention Connection web dialogue on this issue ("Where's the Prevention Frame?" held on January 23, 2007) and explore further what an effective prevention frame might look like and how we can advance it.

        Space will be limited to the first 450 registrants
