Walker Beach (PO)
Scripps College Advocates for Survivors of Sexual Assault, Intercollegiate Feminist Center for Teaching, Research and Engagement, Pomona College Women's Union, Advocates for Survivors of Sexual Assault, and Mudd Advocates for Survivors of Sexual Assault would like to invite survivors and loved ones to come and participate in the 5C Clothesline Project Public Shirt Display.
The Clothesline Project began in 1990 as a visual display of shirts to bring awareness to experiences of sexual violence. These shirts are created either by the survivor or by a family, friend, and/or loved one. The art display was created with the purpose of educating others about sexual violence and is also meant to be an important part of the healing process for survivors of sexual violence. Survivors of all identities are welcome to be a part of the shirt-making process and the public event. Check out clotheslineproject.org for more information.

Watch the documentary "War Zone" online
WAR ZONE is about sex, power, and what happens when men - either knowingly or unknowingly - threaten a woman's right to walk undisturbed on the streets. What exactly do catcalls, leers, or a whole litany of other behaviors mean to a woman? And why do men engage in these behaviors? Shot all over the United States, Maggie Hadleigh-West turns her camera on men in the same way that they turn their aggression on her.
WAR ZONE is 76 minutes of explosive footage as the filmmaker places herself in very real danger by daring to ask the men on the streets why they are treating a complete stranger in a sexual way. In the process, she has been hit, yelled at, apologized to and engaged in mesmerizing conversations with the men that have harassed her. Through these conversations, Hadleigh-West reveals the anger, fear and frustration as well as the affection, admiration and humor that characterizes relationships between men and women.
This movie is guaranteed to get men and women talking about their often very different experiences in public!
