This week, Ohio University gives back to the community with Take Back the Night; a week long series of events dedicated sexual education, safety and empowerment. Take Back the Night is a long-standing tradition at Ohio University, now on its 35th year of occurrence. Because sexual assault can happen to anyone, these events are open for all genders to attend.
“Sexual assault doesn’t discriminate, so why should we?”
The events are the following:
Monday 3/31 – KICK OFF 5p.m. @ Front Room — Come make signs for the rally. Snacks will be provided!
Tuesday 4/1- INCLUSION PANEL 6-7:30p.m. @ Baker Student Lounge — Q&A regarding sexual assault awareness and prevention. NAME BURNING 8-9p.m. @ McCracken Hall Field — Gathering to support victims and survivors of sexual assault and abuse.

Friday 4/4 – BROWN BAG LUNCH 12p.m. @ Baker Room 239 — Inclusion Discussion. Snacks Provided! SELF-DEFENSE 5p.m. @ Women’s Center Baker 403 — Teaching self-defense mechanisms.
