April {Sexual Assault Awareness Month}

Sexual Assault Awareness Month serves to bring awareness around these issues.
Following the initial observance of October for Domestic Violence Awareness Month,
advocates of sexual assault survivors sought to create a similar awareness event more specific to sexual violence.
What started out as an awareness week in April, grew into a month-long consciousness-raising event
as advocates began to coordinate events throughout the month of April.

Sexual Violence Awareness Film Series

The Mask You Live In | Film Series: April 19, 6pm

A Campus–Wide screening

Modern masculinity, repressed emotions, and gender stereotypes perpetuated across our culture are well examined in Jennifer Siebel Newsom's powerful new work. The Mask You Live In deftly explores the strong messages and societal expectations that are both overt as well as embedded and reinforced through popular culture, sports, and our media. Men from various backgrounds share the impact of their upbringing, relationships with their fathers, their struggles, and the deliberate choices they've made in raising their own children. Experts in the field, including authors, doctors, and educators, provide research as well as observations on the challenges men and boys face in our society’s unrealistic expectations of hyper-masculinity. Seamless testimony woven between compelling statistics and montages lend to the impact of this timely, provocative piece.
Join us for this special screening.
