Skirts to Rally in Response to Local Sexual Assaults

Posted By Christine Borden On Mar 2, 2009 @ 9:38 pm In Sandbox | Comments Disabled

On Wednesday, the skirts will have it. A variety of groups on campus–Berkeley NOW, V-Day and Women’s Identity and Sexuality Small Group–will host a protest [1] of sorts in response to the spate of recent sexual assaults around campus. Last week we blogged about the skirt creeper [2], but just this weekend he’s added two more assaults [3] to his growing tally.

The rally’s designed to let women “feel safe wearing whatever we choose,” which is important considering that the Daily Cal states that the most recent victims were not wearing skirts [4]. Seriously, someone needs to mace this guy.

When: Wednesday, Mar. 4
Time: 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Where: Upper Sproul Plaza
