TESTIMONIALS

The program on public sexual harassment was a great way for West Chester University’s Association for Women’s Empowerment to start our own conversations about sexual harassment on campus. We deal with sexual harassment on daily basis and, prior to your program, not many students had the language to open up a conversation on the issue. The diversity in the video you showed, along with your personal experiences, allowed students in the audience to speak up about their own experiences. We definitely recommend this program to other organizations and colleges. We also look forward to working on issues of sexual harassment on our campus. - Kimberly Montes, President of Association for Women’s Empowerment
