The Silent Witness Project is an exhibit in memory of victims of domestic violence. The Women’s Center hosts this exhibit in the Talley Lobby in order to increase awareness and education about the impacts of domestic violence in our community. Each life-size silhouette carries a plaque with the story of a person who was murdered as a result of domestic violence. NCSU’s Silent Witness Project is modeled after the Silent Witness National Initiative whose goal it is to eliminate domestic violence murders in the United States by the year 2020.
This is the fourth and final workshop in the Domestic Violence Awareness Month Lunch & Learn series. Today’s workshop will provide an opportunity for students, staff, and faculty to hear from experts about support options for individuals experiencing domestic or dating violence in the LGBTQ community. Presenters will discuss the ways in which survivors in the LGBTQ community experience domestic/dating violence, unique barriers they may face in seeking help, on- and off-campus resources for members of the LGBTQ community, and new programming being launched at UNC-Greensboro to support the LGBTQ community.
Join The Movement Peer Educators during Domestic Violence Awareness Month for a special screening of One Love: Escalation. The film follows a college-aged couple through the beginnings of their relationship and shows how unhealthy behaviors can escalate into abuse. After watching the film, workshop participants dive into a discussion about the film discussing the early warning signs of relationship abuse and what they can do if they witness or experience these warning signs. Trigger Warning: This film contains graphic depictions of violence, including sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. Counselors will be available on-site.
Join the Women’s Center in celebrating Love Your Body Day! We are hosting a summit in collaboration with our campus partners including the Movement Peer Educators, the GLBT Center, faculty from WGS, and more! The LYBD is designed to shift the narrative around body positivity to be more inclusive, decolonized, and intentional. Our theme focuses on promoting love and respect of all bodies. Following the LYBD theme of Reclaim, Exclaim, and Disclaim, we intend to reclaim language, exclaim resistance, and disclaim conformity that perpetuates white supremacy.
Opening: Join the Women’s Center in the Love Your Body Day Summit 2018! Meet us on the 2nd floor of Talley Student to open the day with positive affirmations and tell us how you holistically love your body!
Telling Stories w/ Dr. Nelson: Our bodies have stories to tell. Some of these stories are from our lived experience, and some are legacies we carry. Our stories are complex, nuanced, and worthy. In this performance & writing workshop, we will ask our bodies what stories they want to tell, and play with ways to tell them. All physical and writing abilities levels welcome!
Freeing the Body w/ Carlyn: In this workshop we will explore how gender stereotypes formed historically and how these stereotypes impact our experiences and our relationship to our bodies on a daily basis. We will discuss how gender stereotypes perpetuate sexual violence and what we can do as individuals and as a community to shift power structures in order to care for each other and to find our own power and freedom within our own bodies.
ButHer Face w/ MSA: “You would be so pretty if…” Join MSA for a discussion on beauty beyond the “standard”.
Fat Phobia w/ Anna: Join the GLBT Center in a dialogue for the Love Your Body Day Summit, Fatphobia and Body Positiviy in the GLBT Community. Participants will gain awareness pf fatphobia and how it presents in society via mainstream messages and within the body positivity movement.
Tank & the Bangas Film and Discussion: Watch and discuss with us as Tarriona “Tank” Ball talks about her experience as a black woman working towards inhabiting and owning her body.
