Welcome to this week’s edition of the Weekly Round-Up, now coming to you through our brand new newsletter distribution system!

This week has seen massive public conversations as people process the reality of gender-based violence and misogyny in our communities. The poignant and unfiltered conversation taking place under the hashtag #yesallwomen is discussed in several of the links below, as it has spread from a response to a single violent incident to a larger examination of sexism and violence in our society. This discussion, and the discussions happening within it concerning intersectional issues such as race and class, need to happen.

AWAVA believes that violence against women is both a consequence and a cause of gender inequality, and we must all engage with these ideas if we are to address the violence in our communities.
