CREA is pleased to share their 'Count Me IN! Research Report on Violence
Against Disabled, Lesbian, and Sex-working Women in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal.' The report was recently launched at the 12th AWID International Forum in Istanbul, Turkey.
CREA's Sexuality, Gender, and Rights Institute is an annual, week-long residential course that focuses on a conceptual study of sexuality. It examines the links between sexuality, rights, gender, and health and their interface with socio-cultural and legal issues. The participants critically analyse policy, research, and programme interventions using a rights-based approach.
Applications are due on or before 10 February 2012. >>>
This is the first ever research study on violence against lesbian women, female sex workers, and disabled women in three countries in South Asia, Bangladesh, India, and Nepal. The study investigated the hypothesis that women who are outside the mainstream of the South Asian society suffer high rates of violence and are often unable to seek and receive protection from State agencies.
A 9-week Online Course for Practitioners and Activists on Sexuality, Disability, Social Justice, Public Health, Development, and Media will be held on October 17 to December 17, 2011. Applications are due by September 15, 2011.
