END RAPE ON CAMPUS CELEBRATES INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
WASHINGTON—In honor of International Women’s Day, End Rape on Campus (EROC) continues its tradition to celebrate womanhood as well as the economic, political and social achievements of all women – particularly of immigrant women, transgender women, queer women, women with disabilities, women of color, poor and working-class women.
EROC Research Manager Christine Fei issued the following statement:
“On International Women’s Day, we are proud to honor women, especially those leading the fight against sexual violence and for reproductive, economic, racial and immigrant justice. Women and feminine beings have been and are disproportionately targeted by sexual violence and anti-survivor policies that violate basic human rights to self-determination, agency, dignity, and justice. We will continue to organize against the constant attacks on our humanity.
“In the spirit of celebrating womanhood, we come together in celebration of women-identified people. Women are powerful and have been integral to the fight for survivor justice. We will tirelessly advance our vision of a society where all people are free from sexual violence.”
End Rape on Campus (EROC) is a national survivor-led nonprofit dedicated to ending gender based violence on college campuses through survivor support, prevention through education, and policy advocacy.
