Lecture examines same-sex sexual assault

Woman-to-Woman Sexual Violence: Does She Call it Rape? Book Cover
Woman-to-Woman Sexual Violence: Does She Call it Rape?

A relatively new area of study, woman-to-woman sexual assault, is the subject of a lecture presented by the Women’s Resource Center at California State University, Sacramento at 6 p.m. on Monday, April 26 in the University Union Ballroom.

The free event features Lori B. Girshick, author of Woman-to-Woman Sexual Violence: Does She Call it Rape?, one of the few works published on the topic. Before recently going to work for a domestic violence agency in Tucson, Ariz., Girshick was a professor of women’s studies at Warren Wilson College for nine years. She also served as chair of the school’s women’s studies department.

Girshick’s lecture, “Sexual Assault and LGBT Folks: New Considerations and Challenges,” focuses on sexual assault in the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender community and what challenges that community faces in dealing with this issue. She has made numerous presentations on this topic to audiences across the country. Her work is especially noteworthy because she is one of the first researchers to examine woman-to-woman and same-sex sexual assault.

For more information, contact the Women’s Resource Center at (916) 278-7388. For media assistance, contact CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
