Killing Us Softly

Following a hugely popular appearance at a special VRU event in Edinburgh last year, leading academic Dr Jean Kilbourne is back in Scotland with two events that will look at the impact advertising, online pornography and sexting on young people's views and expectation of relationships.

Jean, who has been exploring the connection between advertising, media and public health issues, including violence against women, since the 1960s, will be speaking to audiences in both Dundee and Glasgow.

The Dundee event will take place at the Contemporary Arts, Nethergate, from 9am onwards. In the afternoon, Jean will speak at Glasgow's Mitchell Library. The event will start at 1pm.

To book a place at either event, please contact June Hepburn on 0141 532 5805 or via violence.reduction@scotland.pnn.police.uk.
