EVOKE 2014: SEXUALITY

Evoke 2014 will examine topics such as the influence of pornography and popular media on understandings of gender and sexuality, the need for a sex education curriculum in schools, the institution of marriage as it functions in India, the implications of Section 377, the taboos surrounding female desire, and the influences that contribute to gendered violence.

Given that sexuality is such a central part of human identity yet occupiessuch a conflicted place in society, the talks seek to leave you more committed to creating a society that embraces rather than shuns sexuality, valuing gender equality and consent.
