Take Back the Night is an annual event organized to raise awareness and break the silence around the pandemic of sexual violence. It is a powerful evening beginning with a rally filled with moving speeches and performances, a march through campus and a candlelight vigil where survivors can share their stories in a safe and affirming space. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.


Event: One Billion Rising

Thursday, February 14
College Green, Univ. of Pennsylvania

Please join the Penn Women’s Center, student groups, and leaders campus-wide to take part in the international One Billion Rising campaign. One Billion Rising is a call to action based on the staggering statistics that show as many as 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. This adds up to more than one billion women and girls. You can show your commitment to eradicating violence on campus and beyond by joining us to dance on College Green.
