What were you wearing?

April 11, 12 and 13 | 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. | Neihardt Center, room 118

An exhibition that asks participants to understand that it is never about clothes when there is sexual violence. This exhibit will show re-enactments of outfits worn by those who were sexually assaulted with accompanying stories from survivors. Inspired by the poem “What I Was Wearing” by Dr. Mary Simmerling, the project aims to shed light on the burden of self-blame carried by the question that is ever-present for most survivors and the inability to let go of these clothes and experience. .

The exhibition is free and open to the public.

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