What Were You Wearing? Survivor Art Installation
Tues Feb 27 – Wed Feb 28

The Sexual Violence Prevention & Response Office (SVPRO), in partnership with the Sexual Assault Support Centre of Waterloo Region (SASC) is once again bringing the What Were You Wearing? Survivor Art Installation to UWaterloo. The exhibit is based on student-survivor descriptions of the clothing they were wearing when they experienced sexual violence. 

This myth, along with many others about sexual violence, are used to blame survivors and justify the actions of those who cause harm. Survivors are never to blame. The intent of this exhibit is to bring attention to the pervasiveness of victim blaming, debunk harmful myths and provide education. 

The “What Were You Wearing?” Art Exhibit was inspired by Dr. Mary Simmerling’s poem, What I was Wearing, was created at the University of Arkansas in 2013 by Jen Brockman and Dr. Mary Wyandt-Hiebert.
