[event] SlutTalk Singapore // 3rd Dec 2011 @ The Substation Classroom Level 2

On the 3rd and 4th of December 2011, Singapore will be holding its very own SlutWalk as a statement against sexual assault, victim-blaming, and slut-shaming. In a bid to contextualize SlutWalk Singapore, the official programme kicks off with a full first day of workshops, talks and discussions, touching on issues surrounding sexual assault, victim-blaming/slut-shaming, sexuality and consent.

3rd Dec 2011 The Substation, Classroom 2 @ Level 2
2pm-10pm


(Note: You can choose to attend one of these talks/workshops, or a combination of them. You do not need to attend all if you are unable to.)

*There will be a break of 20mins between each component.

==========================================

2PM
Exploring Sex, Sexuality, and Intimacy by sexologist Dr. Martha Lee (talk)


Sex, sexuality and intimacy are distinct terms which are often used interchangeably. This session aims to explore the difference before discussing what owning your sexuality means and the ways one can better understand/enhance their own sexuality.

6PM
Challenging Complicities coordinated by Singapore Queer-Straight Alliance (roundtable discussion)

Keynote speakers: Wong Pei Chi, Dr Ingrid Hoofd, and Alex Serrenti.


An intellectual roundtable discussion on the freedom to gender identity and its alleged complicities in crime and victim-blaming, it also aims to elevate discussion on feminist and gender identity advocacy in Singapore, with two main topics for discussion:

i) Drawing the lines between crime, victim-blaming, risk management and “complicity” in crime: how may we, as advocates, best articulate ourselves to effect change in mindsets here?

ii) SlutWalk — actual empowerment, reclamation or a continual espousal of male-centric ideas of femininity?

7.20PM
SlutWalkSG: Local Relevance, Global Challenges facilitated by Dr. Joel Gwynne (lecture + discussion)


Explores questions such as: How is SlutWalkSG different compared to SlutWalk as a global movement? Why are Singaporeans becoming involved with SlutWalk? Do women in Singapore experience sexuality differently to women in the West? How do ideas about multiculturalism and multiracialism affect attitudes to women's sexuality? In an apparently "post-feminist" world, what challenges do we face when attempting to make sexual assault and sexual labeling a relevant and crucial social issue?

(This discussion will be preceded by a 20 min mini-lecture)

**Limited to 20 participants only. If interested to attend, please email Dr. Gwynne at joel.gwynne@nie.edu.sg.

8.40PM
Policing Desire and the Whore Stigma by sex workers’ outreach initiative Project X (workshop)


Anyone can be labeled as a whore/slut if she steps out of The Line. And if you’re labeled a whore/slut, you’re less than human and warrant being treated less than human. As such, some key questions we aim to unpack include: Who constructs these forms of control? How do these forms of control manifest and what are its implications? How do we take back control over our minds and bodies?
