*Sixteen Women* is an online exhibition by Nlaka’pamuxand Diné artist Cherry Smiley that seeks to give women survivors of sexual violence a platform to speak back to the man or men who have attacked them. A photo of a survivor and her words, directed to the man or men who have raped or sexually assaulted her, will be released each day of the 16 Days of Action Against Violence Against Women, from November 25 – December 10, 2014.

This term, we have been experimenting with the lecture capture system at Allard Hall, and have a number of our lectures now available on video. As you will see, we are still working out some kinks, including issues with the audio cutting in and out. Hopefully with some practice we’ll get it all down to a science. In the meanwhile, see below to catch a lecture you missed, or re-listen to one of your favourites!
