Take Back the Night: Voices Against Sexual Assault

The Student Life

April 25, 2014

As a student advocate for Choice USA, Elizabeth McElvein SC ’14 hopes that Take Back the Night fosters and extends the idea of community beyond just sexual assault to other groups that experience types of harassment.¬†She believes that this event was powerful in shattering silence around issues of sexual assault.

“It’s about creating a community for survivors and supporters of survivors of sexual assault, which is a form of political violence,” McElvein said. “Affirmative consent is the only kind of consent that is acceptable. There are no gray areas.”
