Columbia University's 'Project Not Asking For It' video.
Made by: Eliza Callahan, Chris Melamed, and Flavia Lagnado
In the past few years, incredibly brave people have participated in the "Slut Walk" to reclaim this word and to drive home the point that no one, regardless of what they're wearing, how they're dancing, or their gender, is ever "asking for it." CLOTHES ARE NOT CONSENT!
Countless perpetrators have been found innocent because they claimed their victim was "asking for it." Let's spread awareness that this is NOT a valid argument, and the victim of sexual assault is NEVER to blame.
Though the project will begin at Wesleyan University, representatives from other colleges will help spread this important message at their schools.
