Dutch Police Hindering Sexual Assault Reports: a conversation with Rosa Timmer
16-11-2015 at 20:00 - 22:00Free
Rosa Timmer is a journalist, blogger and columnist at the Groningen newspaper Dagblad van het Noorden. Tonigh she will come to the SIB to speak about sexual intimidation in the Netherlands and how the Dutch police prevent women from reporting sexual offences. The lecture will have a very interactive character with a moderator, who will ask Rosa questions on this subject to which we would like to have answers.
After a big publication and an online video, a storm of reactions followed and her personal story received lots of attention all over the country. Beginning of June this year she was sexually assaulted in a night club in Groningen and after two extensive conversations with the police she was told she couldn’t report the assault right now, only after two weeks for “time to reflect”. Being a journalist, she started writing on the horrible experience and the process of reporting it at the police. Over the past years she wrote on women emancipation and feminism (also for men).
