Week 4 Homework

In the womens bathrooms you always see the stickers stating, "If your professor or TA is doing something that makes you feel uncomfortable..." I was wondering if there was anything similar to this posting in the boys bathrooms?After talking with a few of my male friends i found out that the mens bathrooms do not contain these types of messages.

My idea is to make a flyer to place in the mens bathrooms around campus that go over what consent is and what NO! means. I would also like to go over what too drunk to give consent is, as well as talk about a women saying repeated no's and and then caving in to yes doesnt really mean yes.

This is a great idea and consistent with the theme of the class that men also need to take responsibility in preventing violence against women. You might talk with Carrie Giese to see is she has any existing materials, stickers, posters, that communicate these points-or if she can provide suggestions of a succint way to present this message in a sticker/poster format. Also---I believe this plan may require permission from bldg managers, so check into that aspect asap as permissions might take time.
