Women’s Center SAAM Events

Denim Days
When: April 3rd and 17th
Time: All day
Location: Lynn University
In 1992, an 18 year old female was raped in Italy by her driving instructor. The case was overturned by the High Court, which stated that, since she was wearing tight jeans, the rapist could not have done this by himself. The women of the           Italian legislature protested by wearing jeans. Join the Lynn University community in participating in Denim Day to honor victims/ survivors of sexual assault by wearing denim for the day. Employees can pay $5 at Employee Services to wear jeans. Students are encouraged to participate as well.

The Clothesline Project
When: April 6th– 10th
Time: 12pm– 4pm
Location: ASSAF Courtyard
The Clothesline Project is a visual display that bears witness to the violence against men and women. During this week, a clothesline will be hung displaying shirts made by Lynn students, staff and faculty members. Each shirt is decorated to represent a particular victim’s experience, by the survivor or by someone who cares about them. If you would like to create a shirt, please stop by the ASSAF courtyard between 12pm and 4pm during this week

50 shades of Consent
When: April 15th

James story. Be sure to invite your friends, pizza and refreshments will be served.

Take Back the Night
