SCSU Women’s Center To Host Events In Honor Of Sexual Assault Awareness Month [AUDIO]
ST. CLOUD — April is sexual assault awareness month and St. Cloud State University’s Women’s Center is working to educate students on the issue.
Lee LaDue is the gender violence prevention coordinator at the Women’s Center. She says there are statistics that show one in four women will be sexually assaulted sometime during their college career.
LaDue says it’s a serious problem in the community and college students need to know how to intervene in a sexual assault situation.
LeDue says it’s important for bystanders to know when and how to intervene. The center is hosting a film screening of the documentary “It Was Rape” on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. in Ritsche Auditorium.
The film looks at the lives of eight women who share their personal stories of sexual assault. Filmmaker Jennifer Baumgardner will also be in attendance to start a discussion and answer questions following the screening. The event is free and open to the public.
