Events

The Clothesline Project

A visual display that bears witness to the violence against women. During the public display, a clothesline is hung with shirts. Each shirt is decorated to represent a particular woman’s experience, by the survivor herself or by someone who cares about her. The shirts are color coded to show the form of abuse and whether the victim survived the abuse. This is coupled with educational programs and information.

Vagina Monologues

A series of women’s monologues acted out by members of the Temple community, based on the book by Eve Ensler. Vagina Monologues occurs every February and is coordinated through the V-Day Organization. V-Day is a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls.

Walk TU

This annual event was first held in the Spring of 2012. "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes", now known as "Walk TU" is a national event designed to encourage male participation in the effort to reduce gender violence. Male students are provided with a pair of women’s shoes and walk a mile around campus to show their support for student safety on campus.
