Hey 3 West,
Tonight I attended a Stop the Hate session on campus. The session tonight was a deeper dive into the topic of harassment on women specifically. Some of the information that we covered was discrimination and sexual assault against women. It was interesting to talk about and discuss the number different ways that women are discriminated against in our society. In addition, we talked about sexual assaults and reviewed a few news stories. We also were presents with some staggering facts related to sexual assaults. For example, on average a college-aged perpetrator has already sexually assaulted 6 women. I found this fact to be very shocking. There are things we all can to do help prevent this from happening. Instead of being a bystander to an incident stand up and say something. Always be looking out for situations for when a woman may be in destress. It is easy things like this that can help drastically reduce the amount of sexual assaults that occur.
I will be attending more Stop the Hate sessions in the future if anyone is interested in coming along. I will also put the link to their website below for additional information.
