  2. Help Save the Next Girl - History and Discussion Presented by Gil Harrington »

    Monday Feb 15

    All day

    """Help Save the Next Girl -history and discussion"" will be presented by Gil Harrington, mother of Morgan Harrington and founder of Help Save the Next Girl and Dr. Jane Lillian Vance, Vice President of Help Save the Next Girl (HSTNG). Help Save the Next Girl is a national non-profit organization formed in honor of Morgan Dana Harrington, a 20-year-old Virginia Tech student who was abducted and murdered in 2009. The program seeks to sensitize young women and girls to predatory danger. Our foundation fosters mutual respect and camaraderie with young men, and we are committed to be an active, imaginative presence on campuses and in clubs and violence prevention forums across the country. Help Save the Next Girl continually develops vital relationships with media and law enforcement. Our connections enhance our ability to quickly disseminate urgent information, such as about a missing person. Help Save the Next Girl also provides outreach support to victims' families. We believe our media presence also promotes our mission to keep young women and campus communities alert to predatory danger. We participate actively in endorsing legislation which augments safety practices in our communities. Through diligent activism in education, victim support, and legislation, we create a strong foundation against violence as we strive to help save the next girl. The purpose of this discussion will be to raise student awareness of violence, especially violence against women, on college campuses. Additionally, this presentation will enhance student awareness of victimization, community action and involvement with legislation.

    All day

    Her-Story 2015 Call for Participants On behalf of the Radford University Women’s Studies Committee, Women’s Studies Club, and Scholar-Citizen Initiative, you are invited to take part in the 13th annual RU Women’s History Month Her-Story Celebration. The theme for this year’s celebration is Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives. Our History is Our Strength--Participate in RU's 2015 Her-Story Project March is National Women’s History Month. As part of a campus-wide series of events, for the thirteenth consecutive year we are re-establishing the Her-Story listserv which is dedicated to sharing stories written by members of the RU community about the women or the aspects of womanhood that have shaped their lives. In cooperation with the National Women’s History Project, this year’s theme presents the opportunity “to weave women’s stories – individually and collectively -- into the essential fabric” of our nation’s, our region’s and our community’s history. How it Works – Sharing Our Stories Beginning March 1st and extending through March 31st, subscribers to the Her-Story Listserv receive a daily posting from one of the list’s members celebrating or otherwise contemplating the impact of a woman or of the aspects of womanhood upon the writer’s life. Please note that pieces selected for publication are shared “as –is.” Beyond basic formatting (TNR 12 pt font, etc.), we do not edit, censure, or otherwise intervene with content. The function of the list and of the celebration is to preserve and honor the voices and experiences of our contributors. For this reason, you must subscribe to the list to participate and you must agree to abide by the rules of our community. The Her-Story listserv is a safe zone where contributors can share their experiences without fear of judgment or reprisal. To subscribe to the Her-Story Listserv for the Month of March, send an email to the Erin Webster-Garrett: ewebster2@radford.edu with SUBSCRIBE in the subject line. Open Call for Contributors and Publication Guidelines To sign-up for a date on which to share your contribution with the listserv, send an email to ewebster2@radford.edu. Our goal is to publish one piece by an RU community member each day of the month.
