Edinburgh Jewish Cultural Centre Live presents #MeToo – Sexual Assault in the Tanach: Sarah Bronzite

July 8

Learning for All
Wednesday 8th July 2020 7.30-9.15 pm
#MeToo: Sexual Assault in the Tanach
Sarah Bronzite
In October 2017, one simple hashtag revealed unimaginable levels of sexual harassment and assault. And yet … it’s always been there. In this session we will catalogue and discuss narratives of biblical sexual assault in Tanach. Using these and a few contemporary examples, we will consider why victims don’t speak up, challenge thinking that says most sexual harassment/assault is ‘not serious’, and see what our community can do to address the problem. Everyone welcome.

Originally a social researcher, Sarah is now a primary school teacher in Aberdeen. She has combined her love of research and education in a recent research project which aims to show how UK school-based sex education can help to reduce sexual violence. She also writes about childfree women, and gender-based violence. She has been involved in helping to address issues of sexual harassment in Jewish communal workplaces.

This will be an event on Zoom and will be recorded. Join the event from 7.30 pm for a 7.45 pm start.
