Who Needs Feminism? (WNF) is a national campaign started at Duke University to fight back against the popular misconceptions around the feminist movement. The aim is to challenge existing stereotypes surrounding feminists and assert the importance of feminism today. Until the denigration surrounding feminism and women's issues is alleviated, it will be difficult to achieve total gender equality, both statistically and socially.
The goal of this campaign is to spread awareness about feminism and how feminism can contribute to ending gender violence, sexual assault and stalking. We aim to challenge participants to think more about the true definition of feminism and how the feminist movement can positively affect them and our community.
Operation Green and Gold (OGG) launched in summer 2012, and since then we have had nearly 1,200 members of our campus community participate. The purpose of OGG is to empower students to end relationship violence and domestic violence. There are very small things that people can do to help end violence. As facilitators, we engage participants in dialogue that nudges students a little further than "I do not see anyone getting hit" to help recognize what contributes to a culture that demeans women and supports violence.
B.I.R.D. stands for Brockport Influencing Responsible Decisions. Prevention and Outreach Services' B.I.R.D. campaign inspires students to make sound decisions during their time at Brockport that will hopefully shape their lives beyond college. Student Health Advocate and Select Respect Peer Educator team members facilitate B.I.R.D. programs on relevant college health topics. B.I.R.D. is known for a tent/table popping up around campus in different locations 1-2 times a week, every week. Every time a student finds the B.I.R.D. program, they complete the activity and interact with staff in order to get an eagle stamp on their B.I.R.D. card. Once a student gets 5 stamps, they can fill out a brief program evaluation form to receive a free B.I.R.D. T-shirt!
This year, over 400 students, faculty and staff participated in the Purple Run 4(K) Change, a 4K run and celebration developed by students to raise awareness around intimate partner violence. The Purple Run provides an opportunity for our community to participate in collaborative activities that inspire hope while building foundations for a healthy campus community.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is an "International Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence. A Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Event is a playful opportunity for men to raise awareness in their community about the serious causes, effects and remediation to sexualized violence."
Every October, we host this event and ask men of our campus to put on red high heels and walk as much as they would like and hold signs that say "Put yourself in her shoes," "I am man enough to walk a mile in her shoes" and "Rape hurts all of us." We hope you join us this year!
