A Conversation with Author Dr. Nusrat Rabbee: War Heroines Speak

A conversation with Dr. Nusrat Rabbee, author of War Heroines Speak: The Rape of Bangladeshi Women in 1971 War of Independence. During this dialogue, Dr. Rabbee discussed the use of rape as a weapon of genocide in the war of 1971, and how it impacted not only the women, but also society in post-war Bangladesh. Dr. Rabbee also explored where women’s rights and status are currently in Bangladesh, and what is currently being done to acknowledged gender-based violence in the country. She also discussed how the events of 1971 connect to the movement to end gender-based violence today, across the world and in the United States.

Female Genital Cutting/Mutilation: An Under-Recognized Form of GBV in the US, 2021

Female genital mutilation or cutting (FGM/C) is a reality for many women and girls across different communities in the United States. Yet, for centuries, FGM/C has remained a hidden tradition. It’s often practiced by women to women, and girls are raised to believe they must remain silent about what they underwent. Silence is an endemic or inherent part of this type of gender violence that can lead to lifelong physical and emotional health consequences. At the core of providing better prevention, protection, health and social support services for women and girls is stronger data, enhanced research, and community engagement. Join Sahiyo, the Asian-Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence, and the U.S. End FGM/C Network for an exploration of FGM/C, its connection to gender-based violence, and how COVID-19 has impacted the movement to abandon FGM/C in the US.

Webinar for Advocates and Adult Allies! Sexual Harassment & AAPI Teens

Do you know what signs to look for and what steps to take if a teen or young adult encounters sexual or other harassment in the workplace? At the EEOC, we have seen that young workers at their first jobs can be especially vulnerable to harassment whether due to sex, national origin and other characteristics. Make a difference in the lives of the Asian and Pacific Islander teens and young adults you serve by learning how to recognize and refer cases, and understanding the role you can play to address workplace sexual harassment.

Presented by EEOC San Francisco. Hosted by API-GBV.

What is Gendered Islamophobia? 2021

Building upon a history of shared values and intersecting work, the Partnership to End Gendered Islamophobia brings together HEART, Justice for Muslims Collective and Vigilant Love to build analysis, tools and power to dismantle Gendered Islamophobia. This workshop is specifically tailored towards practitioners in the field of gender-based violence and gender justice. We focus on ways practitioners can better understand how gendered Islamophobia shows up in their work, and ways to respond in holistic ways. The workshop includes a focus on the intersection of gendered Islamophobia, gender-based violence and reproductive justice. The workshop emphasizes the invisibility of state violence in understanding gender-based violence and particularly the implications of the War on Terror and Islamophobia for Muslim survivors of gender-based violence. Moreover, this workshop includes discussions upon intra-community solidarity and what can be done within broader Asian American spaces to address gendered Islamophobia.
