April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and the WSU Women*s Center is hosting a Take Back the Night event at 5 p.m. on April 14 to bring awareness to sexual assault.

Sajeenaa Jebanathan, senior psychology major and violence prevention coordinator for the Coalition for Women Students, said Take Back the Night is an event to honor sexual assault survivors.

“We are marching for their rights and freedom,” Jebanathan said.

Anyone is welcome to attend the event. The walk starts at the Todd Hall steps, and everyone who shows up will walk around campus before ending at the track and field on campus, Jebanathan said.

People can also make signs and posters for the walk, she said. There is an arts and crafts room in the Women*s Center in Wilson-Short Hall Room 8.

“We invite people to come out and make their own poster or sign so that they can hold it up in the march,” Jebanathan said. “[They can] even make it for other people if they can’t come to the event.”
