1.TOM STRANGER 23 years ago, at the age of 18, Tom raped his girlfriend, Thordis Elva, after a party they had both attended. Tom will share his story to put a spotlight on male responsibility. More widely, his experience will allow us to reflect on harmful gender stereotypes and how these can contribute to sexual assault.
