02.02.2023, 15:00-18:30 | You and me - yes or no? Consensus in sex and relationships

Workshop by sichtbar. Specialist center against sexualized violence e.V.

Consensus in sex means consensuality. Which means, that all participants agree equally and at all times with everything that happens between them. And in such a way that they consciously and actively consent. Sounds sexy, doesn't it? This workshop will be about sharing how consensus can be established in sex and relationships, how we can communicate our own needs, and what consensus has to do with power relationships.

We ask for registration by email to knowmore@tu-braunschweig.de, preferably by 26.01.2023.

 

23.03.2023, 15:00-18:30 | Barbie and Ken - Workshop against (everyday) sexism

Workshop by sichtbar. Specialist center against sexualized violence e.V.

Perfectly female and perfectly male - Barbie and Ken. Met for the first time in the nursery, in teenage years not only as hit faithful companions, they often determine our ideas about masculinity(ies) and femininity(ies) until today. In the workshop, we will look at our own images and prejudices in relation to gender and work together to develop options for action and strategies for dealing with (everyday) sexism. Barbie and Ken are not made of plastic for nothing, so they are not real!

We ask for registration by email to knowmore@tu-braunschweig.de, preferably by 10.03.2023.

 

20.04.2023, 15:00-18:30 | Sexual harassment in studies and professional life

Workshop by sichtbar. Specialist center against sexualized violence e.V.

At least one in four employees has already experienced sexualized violence, harassment and discrimination at work. Among female students, one in two reports having experienced sexual harassment in the university context. In education and employment, we often have particular dependency relationships and hierarchical structures that need to be challenged.

In the workshop, we will discuss what these are, what is meant by sexual harassment at the workplace and in education, who is affected by it, and who perpetrates this violence. We will also discuss the causes and consequences, the legal situation and how those affected can react to this form of violence in the respective situation.

We ask for registration by email to knowmore@tu-braunschweig.de, preferably by 07.04.2023.
