Professor Lori Sudderth from Quinnipiac University presents ‘Creating Safe Space: Changing Communities to Support Survivors’ at the ‘New ways of working: Queensland Gendered Violence Practitioner Forum’ hosted by QCDFVR in Brisbane.

Professor Sudderth does research on policies and practices in response to violence against women in the U.S. and internationally. She is particularly interested in the role of formal and informal communities, and the challenges of providing services and safety to victims of gendered violence in different contexts, such as geographic isolation, migration, and extreme poverty.
