This mural, created in San Jose, California, says: “We Are Over It. End the Rape Culture, Break the Silence, Celebrate All Genders.”
During the spring semester, San Jose State University’s Women’s Resource Center did a lot to address gender violence. They created the mural above, they put on a production of the Vagina Monologues, they created a Tunnel of Oppression (800 people walked through it) and they created the fabulous videos posted below.
Women’s Resource Center Intern Yan Yin told me via email, “There are a multitude of issues we are over with – from the gender binary to homophobia to sexual harassment and assault, and the rape culture. We are grateful for all the people that collaborated with us to produce the pieces.”
From street harassment to rape, from campus sexual harassment to sex trafficking, you can spend all day and night being outraged and upset. It’s great to see communities come together to channel that outrage and speak out and demand an end to gender violence they way the community at SJSU did. Keep up the great work, SJSU!Share on Facebook
