Scene Twenty-Three: {()}


Even more so than foco or froyo, this is the word of the week. From the performances of The Vagina Monologues to this video advertising them:

 ...everyone is thinking about vaginas.

As part of the VDay celebrations, I participated in a self defense workshop led by S&S officer Sergeant Rebel Roberts. We learned what puts us more at risk for assault or unwanted interactions (leaving personal items unguarded, approaching the cars of strangers, and partying alone) and what can make us safer (taking note of people we pass on the street, not wearing disabling shoes, and being willing to shout NO!).

Props to Dartmouth for organizing an event like this to educate and empower its women.
