Francis Marion hosts “G-week” activities
“The Clothesline Project” display, one of the week’s marquee events, will begin Monday and run through Friday. “The Clothesline Project” serves as a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt, and subsequently hanging the shirts on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women.
“Fight Back! Defense Training for Women” on Monday night beginning at 7 p.m. in the Smith University Center, will provide attendees with valuable self-defense tips.
On Tuesday, the Women’s Rights and Empowerment Network (WREN) will provide training and information on the legislative advancement of women’s rights, with South Carolina-specific information.
On Wednesday, “Men of Character” will be hosted in the Smith University Center Commons from 4 to 5 p.m. followed by “Women of Strength” at 6 p.m.
Thursday, March 30 will feature “The Foreplays” – four student curated and performed plays in the Kassab Recital Hall at 7:30 p.m.
