Women’s Center Recognizes DVAM with Film and Panels
Each year, the Women’s Center recognizes Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) with a full slate of programs and events throughout the month of October. Halfway through the month, seven events have taken place across campus to raise awareness of domestic and dating violence on campus and in the broader community.
Domestic and Dating Violence Focus of Upcoming Month of Events
The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence reports that nearly 1 in 3 college women have experienced an abusive dating relationship. While this statistic speaks to the national prevalence of domestic and dating violence among college-age women, it fails to account for the many multiple and intersecting identities of individuals who experience an elevated risk of interpersonal violence.
