SOARS: Story of a Rape Survivor
SOARS is a cutting-edge theatrical experience that stars a diverse cast of women, combining 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 is 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.
SOARS is presented by the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program and the Women's Center. The program is co-sponsored by College Life, Human Resources, Office of Intercultural Advancement, Theatre Arts, Africana Studies, the Center for Public Service, and EPACC.

SASA - Students Against Sexual Assault
Starting out as a group project for a Women, Gender and Sexualities class at Gettysburg College in the Spring of 2011, four students quickly realized the need for organized action to address issues of sexual assault on campus. Forming Students Against Sexual Assault in the Fall of 2011, it is officially recognized as a club at Gettysburg College.
SASA’s mission is to address the statistic that 1 IN 6 PEOPLE who attend Gettysburg College have been or will be a victim of sexual assault over their four years of school. SASA has dedicated itself to addressing these issues, informing the public, encouraging awareness and fostering support within the Gettysburg College Student body.
Meetings are held every Thursday, 8:30pm, Breidenbaugh 205
