About 1.3 million women survive violence every year, but only 25% report it.
Events on Campus:
Wednesday, April 6th: The Clothesline Project
Where: On Campus, courtyard between JEM and St. Ed's
8:00am-7:00pm (weather permitting)
The Clothesline Project was started in 1990 by the Cape Cod's Women's Agenda. Their intention was to create awareness, pay respect to those who have survived sexual assault and sexual violence, and offer an outlet for the survivors.
Sunday, April 10th: Run for the Congo Women
Run, Walk, or Volunteer
The situation in the Congo is a very devastating one-an absolute human rights violation. Rape and torture is used daily as a weapon of war and the purpose of events such as the Run for the Congo is to draw even more attention to the situation in the Congo and to raise money for an organization that directly serves the needs of the women of this war torn country.
This event is this Sunday
Registration fee is $15 adults/$12 for students and kids
