Is there such a thing as “rape culture” on campuses in Canada?

"Who are the key players and actors on the issue of sexual violence on university campuses across Canada and internationally?

Shaheen Shariff, Associate Professor with the Faculty of Education, Director of Define the Line Projects at McGill University has been awarded a $2.5 million Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Partnership Grant to address sexual violence on university campuses across Canada and internationally.

“Our project will engage law, arts and media sector partners (including Facebook), academics and collaborators to propel universities into reclaiming their central role of research and education (as it relates to deeply embedded intersecting forms of misogyny, sexism, homophobia, and related forms of discrimination – often described as “rape culture”)”, says Shariff, who is also an Affiliate Scholar at Stanford Law’s Center for Internet and Society."
