Week 4 Homework

I am currently talking with Lindsey Schnell from the Women's Center about working together on an activism project involving the "No Woman Left Behind" campaign. As of now everything is in the planning stages but Lindsey is trying to get Lauren Chief Elk to come and speak to her women's studies class. I'm interested in getting the bracelets out and speaking to members of our community beyond WS.

No Woman Left Behind was started after three female soccer players from DeAnza College, California broke in on a group of baseball players who were gang raping an unconscious woman at a party.

No Woman Left Behind means that if you see a woman in an unsafe situation or who has passed out from too much alcohol that you intervene on her behalf even if you don't know her.
