Women's Affairs works to educate the campus about women's issues, increase campus safety, promote women as leaders on campus, and organize the Women's Forum. It is also the obligation of Women's Affairs to respond to concerns voiced by the students and respond accordingly, as the task force is the advocate for all female students. Some of these issues have focused around safe sex practices and contraception for both males and females. Women's Affairs assist in the planning of the "Take Back the Night," and other Sexual Assault Awareness week events, as well as plans and presents a Women's Forum to promote women's issues. They produce and distribute women's health pamphlets and are holding a student parent weekend that will address women's health issues and how to actively address them.
Goals: My goals for the year are to give women on campus a voice and address prominent issues that are important to them. The two main areas that the taskforce has decided to work on are sexual assault education on campus and bullying policies. If you have any ideas for events or campaigns for the women’s affairs task force feel free to contact me. It is going be a fun and productive year!
Projects: Love your body day, international women’s night, breast cancer awareness, sexual assault awareness month, take back the night, denim days, April fools, and many more!
