#rapeisnotajoke

How often do you or someone you know use the word 'rape' throughout the day? Come find out why everyone is wearing teal bandanas and why #rapeisnotajoke! This event was developed a few years ago to address concerns with how often someone might use the word "rape" in a joking manner on media/tv, on campus and other areas. The students felt compelled to make programming to address this concern and so #rapeisnotajoke was born! Students will be performing and sharing their experiences. Come learn about rape culture, social norms and what CARE has to offer. We hope everyone joins us so that we can make UWO a safer environment for all!

World of Girls Journey Jump-start

Have you ever wondered what an average day in the life of a girl in a different country is like? What does she eat, what does she wear, and what does she read? How is the experience of being a girl in the U.S. similar to and different from being a girl in other parts of the world? UW-Oshkosh Quest III students will help Girl Scouts discover the answers to these questions and more!

Co-Sponsored with: University Studies Program, Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes, Women's and Gender Studies Program

Walk A Mile in Her Shoes(R) Oshkosh 2017

The International Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence.

No matter whose shoes you're wearing, sexual violence affects everyone.

Whether someone is wearing heels and a skirt or sweatpants and crocs, there's no excuse for gender-based violence. To say that "immodest attire" invites rape is not only skirting the real issue, but it's insulting to men-as if seeing a bit of skin suddenly robs men of their better judgment. So, grab a pair of heels and come walk a mile with us to show that attire is not consent or an excuse!

Men are encouraged to wear high heels for this mile-long walk. Women are encouraged to come as they are (feel free to  wear heels, tennis shoes, flats, slippers, or whatever else you'd like). Participation is free, but we encourage donations to support Christine Ann Domestic Abuse Services and Reach Counseling. Prizes will be awarded for most donations raised, highest heels, and more!
