This Wednesday's meeting, we made posters for our Educational Campaign about Rape, the definition of rape and shocking statistics surrounding rape. We also discussed the upcoming panel discussion we're hosting as part of Women's Herstory Month.
Next Wednesday we'll be hosting an exciting event called:
Mothers or Whores: a Discussion about Media Portrayals of Women. From the controversial Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad endorsed by an anti-abortion group to rap videos, we will be discussing how women are seen as either demeaning sexual objects or in the context of maternity. Is there a middle ground, and if so, what is it? If there isn't, how can we create it? What constitutes a "healthy" and positive media portrayal of a woman in contemporary society? Bring your thoughts on Wednesday, room 909 at 7 pm usual for this important event!
The week after the panel discussion all clubs on campus are invited to join us in a discussion about the upcoming event: Take Back the Night in April. So as to not get anyone confused, there is also a separate TBTN on campus which is not related to NOW-NYU. Our event is separate. NOW-NYU's Take Back the Night planning discussion will be taking place March 3rd, 2010.
