Take Back the Night

 Women’s rights advocates in Shippensburg took over Tuesday night.

“Take Back the Night” began over thirty years ago as an event reminding women of the danger of going out alone at night, and to raise awareness about sexual and domestic violence.

“So it really focuses on being respectful in your relationships, focusing on sexual misconduct, intimate partner abuse, domestic violence or any type of violence that occurs to any individual” Kelsey Roman, Shippensburg University’s Interim Director of the Women’s Center, said.

Sexual Misconduct is any unwelcome or nonconsensual act whether with contact or not. This includes stalking, voyeurism, or touching.

The Women’s Center joined forces with other groups on campus also concerned about sexual misconduct.

The Multicultural Students Affairs office are holding an event called I.C.E. which is focused on human trafficking.

The Self Defense Lesson is in the CUB Multipurpose room on April 18 at 7pm.
