Rape Culture Can't Heal Us | Marva Zohar | TEDxOxford



If we can’t eradicate rape culture from our modern society, we should at least take care of its victims better. But how? Marva Zohar is one of them and she’s got a plan.

She is currently on an international speaking tour, promoting the realisation of her vision: “Land Where Women Heal”. Marva is a conscientious objector to Israel’s mandatory military draft.
