This week is Sexual Assault Awareness Week. Part of the week's events is the "Tie a Ribbon" campaign. You have probably all noticed these purple ribbons tied on the chain around main quad. Each ribbon has been tied on by a survivor, or a friend of someone who is a survivor, of sexual violence or coercion. I myself, tied on several ribbons, one for each of my friends that has been raped. I live in Cleland, and I decided to tie these ribbons on the section of the chain that is closest to my dorm's entrance. Each ribbon I tied showed my support and love for these women, and I was happy to see the purple strips waving in the wind every time I left my dorm.
