We hope to see many students, faculty, and staff interested in Women's Studies at one or both GREAT Day panels: sessions 2T and 3T.
Minors and Concentrators in Women's Studies are strongly urged to attend one or both panels of capstone projects in Women's Studies. Juniors, especially, will need to design their own capstone experiences for next year and should hear some great examples of capstone projects from this year's seniors.
Women's Studies Sessions are held in the 2nd and 3rd concurrent session slots in Welles 119 then 140, respectively. Details follow:

women's studies internship she has been blessed enough to learn about the lives of these individuals after they leave our
educational system. She will be exploring who these women are what their lives are like, and how their disabilities have
affected them (for better and worse).
Engaging Men in Discusssions about Sexual Assault
Hope's research identifies the reasons men are reluctant to participate in discussions about sexual assault and where the
foundations lie for these attitudes. After identifying these blockages I will explore ways that men can be encouraged to join
discussions and serve as allies to women.
Sex Ed Beyond the Schools
The sex education given in schools is rarely comprehensive and tends to focus only on the physical. This project focuses on
alternative methods of sex ed, including Rochester's recent "Safer Sex Party" and healthy relationships workshops for foster
teens and women in rehab.
