About TISSTalks

Silence is not acceptance. Silence is perpetuating violence.

Continuing with this belief, TISSTalks is back this year calling on people to keep talking – especially considering developments on campus and to examine the gendered nature of these events.

TISSTalks will continue to be a space for dialogue (confrontation, if need be) on gender. It hopes to successfully be able to engage groups with different gender perspectives in a constructive discourse.

The objectives of  TISSTalks have been to provide fora for talking about sexual harassment as well as sexuality in a rigorous manner and to strive towards recognition among students that gender is a real, living identity not to be subsumed under other categories.

Carrying forth, this year TISSTalks seeks to be part of mobilising people on campus along gender-conscious lines and to attempt to systematically and gradually breach the comfort zones in which the patriarchal conservatism of the campus remains ensconced.

To this end, TissTalks will be seen out of its virtual space into physical space through talks, discussions, participation in campus issues and more.

Come, be a part of the movement.
