|Women's Center sponsors ND Clothesline Project and Take Back the Night Rally|
The Women's Center is sponsoring the 14th annual Clothesline Project through Oct. 10 in the Memorial Union Ballroom, second floor. Hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to noon Friday.
The Take Back the Night Rally will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 9, in the Memorial Union Ballroom with keynote speaker Andrea Cooper, who will share the story of her daughter, Kristin. In 1995, Kristin was raped by a friend; as a result of this assault, Kristin battled depression which came to an end when she took her own life.
The Clothesline Project is a visual display of T-shirts that demonstrate the effects of domestic violence and sexual assault in our community. Each shirt represents a particular adult’s, young adult’s, or child’s experience and is decorated by the survivor or by a family member or friend. Help us take a stand against domestic violence and sexual assault in our community. This issue affects everyone, not just women.
