The Haven Project and the Fashion Merchandising Program are partnering together to set up the What Were You Wearing Exhibit. Anonymous survivor stories from the IUP community will be on display all week in the Stapleton Library.  What Were You Wearing Campaign- Blue Hoodie and a Boot

“What were you wearing?” is an all-too-common question asked of survivors of sexual assault. This question is rooted in victim-blaming. This exhibit aims to dispel the myth that survivors provoke their assault due to how they were dressed. Stop by to experience this powerful and emotional display.

Content Warning: Stories include descriptions of gender-based personal violence, which may be upsetting to some.

Questions? Email haven-project@iup.edu

If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual assault, there are resources available to offer support. You are not alone.

  • The Haven Project – 724-357-3947

Many people continue to wrestle with the stigma that they cannot have it all and remain successful, but this presentation will show you how it can all be done.

This poetry workshop is facilitated by noted poet and activist Aja Monet. We will spend time with work by women writers and artists of the diaspora who raise necessary questions about the role of self in society and our many methods of survival, to include the governing of feelings and the politics of emotional labor.
