DENIM DAY

April 27, 11:00 - 3:00    Dryden Patio

Denim Day is th eresult of the 1992 case in which an 18-year-old in Italy was sexually assaulted by her driving instructor. She pressed charges and won her case. The instructor appealed, and in the verdict was overturned in the Italian High Court. A member of the High Court declared that since she was wearing very tight jeans, the instructor could not have removed them by himself, therefore she willingly participated. In protest, members of the Italian parliament wore jeans to work. 

In April 1999, the state of California established the first Denim Day in the U.S. At SMC, we partner with Community Violence Solutions to put on a visual display. 

TAKE BACK THE NIGHT

April 27, 7-10pm, Hagerty Lounge 

Join us as we speak out against sexual assault and domestic violence. Students, staff, and community members will play music, dance, read poetry, share stories, perform monologues, and honor sexual assault survivors and victims. A march around the campus and a candle light vigil will follow the performances.

ONGOING PROGRAMS

BODY POSITIVE
Every Wednesday from 5:30-7pm
The Body Positive is a support and activism group that meets bi-weekly in the WRC. We believe that women can make the choice to love and accept themselves just as they are, and that we can fight against the messages we get daily that tell us we're not good enough and that we have to change ourselves. In TBP, women learn how to move and eat intuitively and how to love their bodies and themselves for the beautiful, amazing and unique individuals they already are.

MAMAS ON MONDAYS
The second monday of every month
Monday MAMAS will meet on the last Monday of every month at noon. This group is for moms with children of ALL ages and for expectant mothers. These meetings are sponsored by the WRC and the Health and Wellness Center.
Note: The meetings are open to SMC Staff, Faculty, & Students only.
