Institutional Betrayal – Higher Education, the Military, and the Criminal Justice System @ BWJP Webinar
Sep 27 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

 

Faculty will explore the various ways that critical systems have historically betrayed the trust of battered women and sexual assault survivors.  The three institutions examined in this webinar are higher education, the U.S. military and the criminal legal system.  In failing to institute and implement protections contained in law and policy, these institutions have breached the social contract made with survivors.  The broken promises publicized by the institutions, promises of justice, opportunity, safety, and accountability, have induced survivors to step up and out, taking risks to safeguard themselves and their children and to escape the violence and coercive controls of their assailants.  The betrayal of the faith invested in these institutions by survivors has too frequently placed them in enhanced peril, and has sometimes compromised the relationships of advocates with the survivors they serve.  Faculty will explore both the betrayals and strategies to end the systemic failings/malfeasance of these critical systems.
