Story of A Rape Survivor (SOARS)

SOARSThis cutting-edge theatrical experience stars a diverse cast of women, and combines photographs, dance, spoken-word poetry, and music as a way to educate about healing from sexual violence. Featuring the music of Nina Simone, Maxwell, and Sade, SOARS tells one woman’s story about how she reclaimed her body, sexuality, and self-esteem after being sexually assaulted in college. The ultimate aim was to show that the shame, guilt and self-blame that rape victims too often experience can be eased; that the stories of rape survivors can be one of triumph and hope.

The event was held in the CUB Ballroom on Thursday, October 3 at 7:00 pm. The first of our 2013-14 “Talking Back to Violence” lecture series, we are proud to say that this event was sponsored by the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program and the Women’s Center, and co-sponsored by College Life, Human Resources, Office of Intercultural Advancement, Theatre Arts, Africana Studies, Center for Public Service, and an EPACC Grant.
