The Beauty Redefined mantra is: “Women are more than just bodies. See more. Be more.” This expanded definition of positive body image provides the foundation for their overall mission to promote body image resilience, or the ability to become stronger *because* of the difficulties and shame women experience in their bodies, not *in spite of* those things. Through both research and personal experiences, Beauty Redefined works to arm girls and women with the tools to become resilient in the face of objectification and unreal ideals about female bodies.

As part of Women's History Month, the Gender Resource Center will be showing “Battle of The Sexes,” a movie starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell.   A presentation will proceed the movie with what was going on when Billie Jean King played against Bobby Riggs in September 1973.   What has changed since Bobby Riggs opined that the female game was inferior and that even at his current age of 55 he could still beat any of the top female players? In 2018 what has stayed the same, have we gone backwards?  All are welcome to attend, ask questions, and contribute to the discussion. 


Denim Day

April 19th - 12:00 to 3:00
Canoe Room, Pond Student Union

For the past 16 years, Peace Over Violence has run its Denim Day campaign in April in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month. The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. In this rape prevention education campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against sexual assault.
