From March 3-March 6, Women’s Student Assembly hosted their Annual “Take Back the Week”. Here are some highlights from the events!
Alumni Park was transformed into a sacred space for expressing stories of survival. People came out to make t-shirts to share their own stories as well as hang up shirts from previous years to air out the dirty laundry of gender-based violence.
Night of Artivism
In this cozy space, students were were able to perform their desired artistic medium on stage and raise their voices about sexual violence. Stories were told, poetry was read aloud, and songs were sung. The night was filled with a paramount of support and love for the brave voices who participated on this Night of Artivism.
Know Your Rights
It was magical to see a community come together in support of each other. The evening began with awe-inspiring poet, Andrea Gibson who opened their heart to share some beautiful words with us. Following their set, audience members bravely shared their stories of survival on stage. To close the night, we marched through campus in a candle-light vigil commemorating our dark past, sharing tears and hugs, and shining a light to a beautiful future.
