University of Kansas Lets their Underwear Hang Out for Sexual Violence Awareness

Local Women’s Advocacy Groups on and around the University of Kansas campus are taking advantage of Sexual Violence Awareness month by creating awareness campaigns for students, according to a story in Kansan.com. One of the most striking is a series of clothes lines hung with men and women’s underwear. The underwear displays messages and thoughts about sexual violence written by students.

Annie McKay, assistant director of the Emily Taylor Resource Center, says that people are only aware of sexual violence when it is propelled into the media headlines, and then people forget about it. “The challenge,” she says,  “becomes garnering student interest the other 300 days of the year when it’s not on the front page of the paper,”

Since April is Sexual Violence Awareness month, take this opportunity to educate yourself, your loved ones, and friends about sexual assault, rape, and other sexually based crimes. The more knowledge you have, the better you will be able to protect yourself and help victims of these heinous crimes.
