YOU DON’T NEED A CAPE TO BE A SUPERHERO!
Have you ever wanted to step into a situation because you knew something was wrong, particularly if it is a friend you are worried about? This workshop focuses on the principle of ‘bystander intervention’ and will assist participants to develop strategies to intervene in difficult and troubling situations. The focus is on intervening in incidents of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking; but principles can be more broadly applied.
* Thursday, 12 September from 11:00am–12:30pm in Tivoli 317
* Monday, 4 November from 2:00pm–3:30pm in Tivoli 542
IS THIS HOW LOVE’S SUPPOSED TO FEEL?
Have you ever felt unsure about your relationship or a friend’s relationship? Not sure if something is going right or wrong? This is an interactive workshop to help young adults understand their intimate relationships, how to set boundaries in a relationship, as well as how abusive behaviors can manifest themselves differently for different people.
* Tuesday, 10 October from 9:30am–11:00am in Tivoli 322
* Wednesday, 16 October from 2:30pm–4:00pm in Tivoli 542

|| ABOUT THE SHOW ||
The Vagina Monologues is made up of a varying number of monologues read by a varying number of women. Each of the monologues deals with an aspect of the feminine experience, touching on matters such as sex, love, rape, menstruation, female genital mutilation, masturbation, birth, orgasm, the various common names for the vagina, or simply as a physical aspect of the body. A recurring theme throughout the piece is the vagina as a tool of female empowerment, and the ultimate embodiment of individuality

Let's Talk About Sex, Violence & the Media!
November 12, 2013, 2:30pm
Have you ever wondered who creates media messages and what goals they are trying to achieve?
Are you interested in understanding the delivery techniques used to spin messages and persuade an audience?
Join us for a critical discussion of how popular media reflects societal power dynamics and normalizes violence.
This interactive workshop provokes discussion about what interpersonal violence is and how media and pop culture messages contribute to the normalization of it in our culture. Activities, images and video clips about media messaging and message delivery will illustrate concepts of sexual objectification, gender construction, and the intersections of race, class, and power as they relate to interpersonal violence.
These discussions are intended to help participants think critically about how the media relates to interpersonal violence and what individuals and groups can do to create social change.
To register, please call 303-556-6011 at least 24 hours ahead of the workshop date, or stop by The Phoenix Center in Tivoli 227.
