Waxing Against Women's ViolenceDecember 02, 2009
Category: Community Outreach
The Center for Women and Families introduces the White Ribbon Campaign (WRC) to SUU December 3 and 4 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Sharwan Smith Center Rotunda with the event "Waxing Against Women's Violence." The event will be held to raise funds to support the White Ribbon Campaign here on campus. Several SUU men have volunteered to be waxed on their arms, legs, back and chest areas for the campaign.
The WRC began in 1991 in Canada when a group of men decided they had a responsibility to urge men to speak out about violence against women. The WRC website states that the wearing of a white ribbon is a personal pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls.
The event will include prizes, music provided by Power 91 and of course the waxing of willing men. Come end your semester with a scream as you watch men willingly submit to the pain of body waxing to take a stand to stop violence against women.
