      On Wednesday, April 21, there were will a few events regarding sexual
      assault awareness month.

      Clothesline Project
      Day: Wednesday, April 21
      Time:  10am-2pm
      Where:  Art Quad
      Come break the silence and experience the Clothesline Project.  In the
      privacy of a closed canopy, decorate a shirt expressing emotions
      involved in your experience with intimate partner violence or sexual assault or
      view other survivors' experiences on the multiple shirts that will be hung
      on the clothesline.
      For more information contact Jessica at 924-6500 or Leslie at 924-6204


      Jeans to Work Day
      Day:  Wednesday, April 21
      Time:  All Day
      Wear Jeans to Work on Wednesday, April 21 to protest sexual assault.

      In 1999, an Italian high court overturned a rape conviction in which
      the judge ruled that the victime, who was wearing tight jeans at the time
      of her assault, could not have been raped because she must have helped the
      rapist to remove her pants.

      Two weeks later, every female member of the Italian Parliament wore
      jeans onto the floor of the Parliament to protest the absurb ruling and to
      make a statement--

      NO MATTER WHAT A WOMAN WEARS, IT IS NEVER OKAY TO RAPE!

      So, do your part to protest sexual assault!  Wear your jeans, and if
      anyone asks why, be sure to tell them !
