Three USU professors presented on current, global examples of violence against women. Marisella Martinez-Cola addressed the high number of missing and murdered indigenous women in the United States.

Crescencio Lopez spoke about the violence occurring in Mexico and how women were disproportionately affected by it.

Gonca Soyer told the audience of how the rights of people, especially women and children, were being violated in Turkey because of the failed coup attempt in 2016. Following these stories, the audience participated in a moment of silence.
