19 Sep What Were You Wearing – BRISSC Northside
BRISSC and the Northside Sexual Assault Action Network (NSAAN), invite you to a very special awareness-raising event during Sexual Violence Awareness Month (SVAM) – a ‘What Were You Wearing?’ Art Installation, which challenges the myths and victim-blaming of women against whom sexual violence is perpetrated.
Inspired by Mary Simmerling’s poem, “What I Was Wearing,” the project invites women who have survived sexual violence to replicate the clothing they were wearing at the time of the violence, together with an impactful statement describing their experience, in an evocative display.
Check-out the event details below! We encourage survivors and community members to attend…
