Bisexual people report significantly higher rates of emotional, financial, sexual, and physical intimate partner violence compared to gay and lesbian people. 49.3% of bisexual women are victims of severe physical intimate partner violence. Bisexual women have a 61.1% lifetime prevalence of rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner.

For Sexual Assault Awareness Month, please join Intersectional Feminism Magis Row House, the Nash House, and GU Queer People of Color for an important discussion with Erin Hill from Health Education Services on stigma and the experiences of intimate partner violence for bisexual women. Dinner will be provided!

Please email accommodation requests to km1165@georgetown.edu.
