"What Were You Wearing?" - 3D virtual exhibition by Health Promotion and Wellness at SF State

"What Were You Wearing?"

Tue, 04/28/2020 to Sun, 06/28/2020

curated by:

The “What Were You Wearing?” exhibit is a storytelling platform dedicated to survivors coming from communities of color, queer/trans/gender non-conforming/non-binary identities, male-identified people, diverse gender identities, people with disabilities, different socioeconomic status, and of people existing at the intersections of multiple identities.

Our hope is to empower survivors to own and share their narratives to help challenge society's stereotyped myths of who is victimized by sexual assault.

Through this exhibit, we aim to crush the myth that a person’s clothing at the time of their assault is an excuse to be harmed or be blamed for their victimization, while illuminating how sexual assault can happen to and can be committed by anyone.

We recognize that the stories in this exhibit may bring about uncomfortable or triggering feelings. Please exit this page at anytime you do not feel safe or comfortable. We welcome persons with disabilities and will provide reasonable accommodations upon request. Please contact Denmark Diaz at (415) 338-2191 or so your request may be reviewed.
