Did you know today is Denim Day? Denim Day began after a rape conviction was overturned in 1998 because the Italian Supreme Court ruled the victim's jeans were too tight, therefore she must have helped remove them. Wearing denim on Denim Day is a form of protest against misconceptions surrounding sexual violence and is a way to support survivors.

As we come to the conclusion of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, take a trip down memory lane with us to this time last year when we hosted a pop-up photo booth in Talley. Partners from offices across campus also shared photos of their staff in denim.

For all the survivors among us, know that the Women's Center sees you, hears you, and believes you. If you or someone you know is experiencing relationship violence, sexual violence, or stalking, and are in need of advocacy services, the Women’s Center has trained advocates available for remote support via the 24/7 Sexual Assault Helpline at 919-515-4444 and [email protected].

Hey Everyone! Feminist Fridays is now ONLINE! 🥳🥳 Our Feminist Friday on March 27th from 2:30pm-3:30pm is:
Astrology, Activism, and Self-Actualization: Using the Stars to Connect with our Radical Self-Love
.
.
To join, visit our new Digital Feminist Friday Link at: go.ncsu.edu/feministfriday .
.
♈️♉️♊️♋️♌️♍️♎️♏️♐️♑️♒️♓️ .
.
Join peer scholar Kali Fillhart for a conversation about your love, your activism, and the stars that bind it all together. In honor of Womxn’s History Month, we will be discussing how astrology can connect us to our radical selves through self-analysis and deeper personal understanding. This presentation will teach participants how to engage with the archetypes of the planets and zodiac in reference to their own charts as a way to discover and execute their own form of radical self-love. Through this astrological lens, they will learn how to embrace radical self-love, what the art of self-care looks like, and why we all need a little more inspiration from the stars. .
♈️♉️♊️♋️♌️♍️♎️♏️♐️♑️♒️♓️

Whether one “believes” in astrology or not is not important in order to attend this presentation.

We wanted to start celebrating International Womxn’s Day before Saturday’s with this Free Expression Tunnel Painting! Stop by, take a photo and tag us/use the hashtag #ncstateherstory!

We think the theme for International Womxn’s Day #eachforequal goes along greatly with our focus on The Body is Not an Apology and Radical Self-Love! How can each of us create space for
each other? One way is through radical self-love, which focuses on our bodies as a part of the collective and engaging in radical self-love with ourselves and others.
