The University of Florida recently released the findings from its campus climate survey on sexual assault, which found that 20% of campus women have experienced sexual assault since coming to UF, while the majority of those assaults remain unreported. (See newspaper coverage of the survey in The Alligator and The Gainesville Sun.) Is "rape culture" to blame for sexual assault or something else? Join us for a discussion on rape and sexual assault on campus.

This workshop is for women to learn about the roots of the Women's Liberation Movement in the Civil Rights and Black Power Movements—and how this history can be used today.
- What were the positive lessons that gave women the tools to attack male supremacy?
- How did Black women lead in the Women’s Liberation Movement and why is this not known?
- What did Black organizers tell white women that caused them to organize for Women’s Liberation?
A $10 donation will be requested at the workshop.

As women of color, we are involved in various struggles for freedom and social justice. As a result we often find ourselves working with or in solidarity with white allies. Join the Women of Color Caucus for a consciousness-raising meeting on Monday, October 5th at 7:00 p.m. EST to discuss our experiences organizing in mixed-race groups or coalitions (successes, challenges, etc.).
This meeting is open to women of color. You can join us for this meeting in person in:
