We will also encourage students, staff and faculty to wear a purple ribbon. The Purple Ribbon is a unifying symbol of courage,
survival, honor and dedication to ending relationship abuse.
And during the week of October 7th, Wolff House (the SHARPP office) will glow purple for 5 nights in recognition to the importance to healthy relationships.




Sexual Violence Awareness:Film Series

UNH SHARPP has teamed up with the UNH Women's Studies Program to bring you a series of films
that will raise awareness regarding sexual violence in our society.


Tough Guise 2


Tuesday, October 21: MUB Theater I, 6:00 PM

Tough Guise 2
Pioneering anti-violence educator and cultural theorist Jackson Katz argues that the ongoing epidemic of men’s violence in America is rooted in our inability as a society to move beyond outmoded ideals of manhood.

In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority.

Tough Guise 2 stands to empower a new generation of young men – and women – to challenge the myth that being a real man means putting up a false front and engaging in violent and self-destructive behavior.

Moderated panel discussion to follow.

Sponsored by the UNH Athletic Department, UNH Housing & Residential Life, UNH Health Services, UNH Eating Concerns Mentors (ECM), The Counseling Center, the President’s Commission on the Status of Women and The Discovery Program.

Sexual Violence Awareness:Film Series

Tuesday, November 18: MUB Theater I, 7:00 PM

Killing Us Softly 4

Killing Us Softly 4

This newest edition of Jean Kilbourne’s influential and award-winning Killing Us Softly series shows how the advertising industry continues to reinforce, and glamorize, a regressive and debased notion of femininity. Using a wide range of contemporary print and television ads, Kilbourne lays bare a misogynistic fantasy world of undernourished, oversexed, and objectified women, and examines these images against the real-world backdrop of eating disorders, men’s violence against women, and the political backlash against feminism.  




January {National Stalking Awareness Month}

NSAM

Please join SHARPP and the UNH community by recognizing NSAM. Follow our daily social media campaign on Facebook and Twitter.

In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, join SHARPP and the UNH Community for the:

2015 Stepping Out Against Violence at UNH: RALLY&WALK!

ANTI-VIOLENCE RALLY&WALK!


April 9, 2015, The Great Lawn in front of DeMeritt (rain location MUB Strafford Room)

This localized social movement aims at gathering students, faculty, staff and Durham community members together to take a collective and powerful stance against all forms of violence on our campus, including violence against women. Violence against victims/survivors results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in relationships, and from societal abuse of power and domination in the forms of sexism, racism, heterosexism, classism, able-bodyism, ageism and other oppressions.

This event will include informational tables, reading of UNH’s Community Proclamation Against Violence, a student call to action to end violence at UNH and a 20 minute walk around campus,

This event is sponsored by SHARPP with support from organizations and department at UNH and in the local community.

Check back for more details to come!

The White Ribbon Campaign is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women and girls, promote gender equity, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity.

During the month of April, The UNH White Ribbon Campaign works towards inspiring men at UNH to “Be Part of the Solution” of helping to end violence against women on campus and throughout their lives. It’s about being part of the conversation towards change in what it means to be a man, offering tips on how men can help end sexual assault and harassment, and asking you to know when to engage and speak out against violence against women.
