Believing In Myths About S*xual Assault Might Make People Less Likely To Help If They Witness An...

Very interesting article about how the perpetuation of myths surrounding sexual assault make even those close to the victim less likely to help in an instance of sexual assault. What do you think? How can we help victims of assault more effectively?

"She was asking for it." "A man can't r**ed anyway." These kinds of myths about sexual assault are more than just ignorant; they're also dangerous โ€” and as a new study shows, they're dangerous in more ways than one: According to recent research, people who subscribe to such myths are less likely to

Last week, For The Women had an awesome collab meeting with the members of POWER (Pushing Our Women-of-Color to Excel in the Real-World) to discuss intersectional feminism and how race affects the way women are seen though the lens of society. We had an excellent and informative discussion on what it means to be a woman today along with a compelling discussion of race and how the two relate to one another.

Don't forget that For the Women meets at 8pm in the dining hall complex Wednesdays! We'd love to have you and your friends at our next meeting tomorrow!

Hey guys! Reminder that the walk is happening rain or shine TOMORROW and to bring $12 for the train!

Many shootings are not called by their proper name: domestic violence | Jessica Valenti

Interesting article about shootings being under-reported as instances of domestic violence. What do you think about this point of view? Do you believe that this volume of shootings are connected to domestic violence?

To stop domestic violence homicides and show victims a modicum of respect we must โ€“ at the very least โ€“ call the crimes what they really are
