What Were You Wearing?

April 11, 12, & 13  |  2 to 7 p.m.  |  Neihardt Center, Room 118

An exhibit that asks participants to understand that it is never about the clothing when sexual violence occurs. This display will show recreations of outfits worn by those who were sexually assaulted with accompanying stories from the survivors. Inspired by the poem “What I Was Wearing” by Dr. Mary Simmerling, the project intends to shed light on the burden of self-blame brought forth by the question that is pervasive for most survivors and the inability to shed those clothes and the experience.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.

hosted by Center for Advocacy, Response & Education (CARE).
