Open Access is “the free, immediate, online availability of research articles combined with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment.” International Open Access Week, now in its 10th year, is an opportunity to take action in making openness the default for research to turn discoveries into better lives.

This year’s theme is “Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge.” In observance of Open Access Month, join us for a presentation by IUP faculty.

Audiences of all backgrounds and ages can see how we all contribute to the perpetuation of rape culture by understanding how this event affects different sectors of our society. The Narrator is a college student who motivates the audience to speak up and finds her voice. Other characters include Journalist, Prosecutor, Daytrader, Politician, Psychologist, 3rd Grader, and Professor who help the audience learn about sexual violence statistics, Title IX history, self-defense moves, and the complexity of sexual violence against women.
