The Gulliver Strategy as envisioned by Culture Reframed is a comprehensive effort toward equality and health with education at its core. There is a dual need to educate parents and health professionals so that they can recognize and respond to how pornography is affecting youth, families, and communities. Culture Reframed is developing a research-driven health education platform aimed to respond to and prevent the effects of pornography at the family, community, and institutional levels.
A commitment to social justice and well-being has led Dr. Sophie Andar to initiate, develop, and facilitate youth and community development, violence prevention, and health promotion efforts in grassroots, non-profit, university, and city and state government settings over the past ten years. Diverse roles at the New Mexico Office of the State Historian, the Columbia Center for Youth Violence Prevention, and the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women have deepened her appreciation for multilevel, multisector collaborative mobilization toward sexual violence prevention. As a fellow for the Teachers College, Columbia University Research Group on Disparities in Health, Dr. Andar recently conducted the first study to examine the role of digital media, including pornography, in college sexual assault. Dr. Andar holds a doctorate in health education from Teachers College, Columbia University.
