Please join L.I.P. Service: Liberation in Progress and Women's Studies as we host a teach-in event on the women of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the sexual violence that is used against them as a weapon of war in that nation's civil conflict. Discussion will be led by a panel of experts, including:

*Wendy Lehman: MA in International Peace Studies and activist with Christian Peacemaker Teams working in the DRC
*Dr. Timothy Scarnecchia: Assistant Professor of African History, Kent State University
*Dr. Kirk Arden Hoppe: Associate Professor of African & World History, The University of Illinois at Chicago
*Dr. TJ Boisseau: Associate Professor of Gender & Cultural History, The University of Akron
*Rosa Githiora: MPA in public administration and UA graduate student specializing in gender-based violence in Africa

This event is part of our prelude to the Vagina Monologues, as the campaign on behalf of Congolese women has been selected by V-Day as the beneficiary of a portion of profits raised from this year's performances. Please note, this teach-in will contain material that may potentially be triggering to survivors of sexual assault.
