March: Women's History Month

Event: Movie Suffragette, and panel discussion

Co-Sponsored with Program Council, ASI

A drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality - their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.

Doors open @ 5:30 pm

April: Sexual Assault Awareness/ Prevention Month
Event: Denim Day

Date: Wednesday, April 27th

All day

Community members, elected officials, businesses and students are asked to make a social statement with their fashion and wear jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against misconceptions that surround sexual assault.

Denim Day campaign was started by Peace Over Violence, and is on a Wednesday in April every year in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month. The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent.  Learn more about the campaign at:
