"According to the U.S. Department of Justice, young women between the ages of 16 and 24 experience the highest rates of violence by current or former intimate partners." (http://www.ncadv.org/)
No one is immune to the problem of dating violence. It is an issue that is prevalent across the nation and even on Dartmouth's campus! Because of the existence of this grave problem, the Center for Women and Gender is taking an active stance to promote awareness and education about the problem of dating violence through an awareness campaign entitled "Dating Violence: The Silent Problem" this Fall term. We hope that through this campaign we will eliminate some of the myths and stereotypes associated with violence and its victims.
The campaign will consist of advertisements around campus to promote a greater awareness. Some forms of media include posters, banners in Collis, table tents in the dining halls and the formation of an advocacy group. This term's campaign will culminate in the showing of a Frederick Weissman film entitled "Domestic Violence" on November 7th in 28 Silsby.
Here a few things we've done this fall:
