Events for Women's History Month 2013


Reclaim Week March 4-8

  • Monday 3/4 Slut Walk Preparations
    5p, Steger 6th Floor
    Hang-out and make posters for Wednesday's Slut Walk!
    About Slutwalk: Slutwalk is an international protest movement against rape culture, victim blaming, and slut shaming. Sonya Barnett and Heather Jarvis, who became Co-Founders of Slut Walk responded:"We are tired of being oppressed by slut-shaming; of being judged by our sexuality and feeling unsafe as a result. Being in charge of our sexual lives should not mean that we are opening ourselves to an expectation of violence, regardless if we participate in sex for pleasure or work. No one should equate enjoying sex with attracting sexual assault."

    We especially want to make this anti-slut shaming statement visible on America's college campuses, places where 1 in 4 women are raped before they graduate. The general idea of the movement is to make ourselves visible in a public space with anti-rape culture, victim blaming, and slut shaming signage and chants, all while being scantily clad ;) (However, you're invited to come dressed as you like)
