Em Seikkanen, Head of Content and Communications at Claned

Em has a women’s studies degree and she has presented at the (US) National Women’s Studies Association on rape culture and masculinity. She has also studied male identities as a driver of authoritarianism in US politics. These things she has really been passionate about personally and politically for well over a decade.

Em has been subject to violence in her relationship, and she has been sexually assaulted by men. Gender based violence is way too common and too many victims are being silenced.

“If my story raises consciousness and gets people talking, then that’s what I’m trying to do.” Em Seikkanen
