‘What Were You Wearing’ exhibit aims to break stigmas

first_imgThe ‘What Were You Wearing’ exhibit is part of a nationwide effort aimed to combat the myths of sexual violence and its survivors, with the most common misconception being that the clothing an individual wears is what led to their assault.  While the exhibit is open until Sept. 30, 20:1 hopes that the ongoing conversation on campus will continue beyond.  And in July, B-U President Harvey Stenger pledged to make “real progress to put a halt to any sexual assaults within our community, and commit that all Binghamton University offices will continue working with all students to make them feel heard and supported and to encourage students to report incidents.” First-year and transfer students are also required to take a sexual assault training program, which seems to be effective even as the program is virtual, according to students 12 News spoke with.  BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — An exhibit at the Bundy Museum is asking the question — what were you wearing? It may seem like a simple question, but the answer is much more complex.  Haley Murphy, the “Enough is Enough” Coordinator at The Crime Victims Assistance Center, the other partner to the installation, says it’s important to get college students involved in the conversation, adding that sexual assault occurs more frequently on college campuses.  “It doesn’t matter how revealing the clothing is, it doesn’t matter how much clothing somebody is wearing, it doesn’t matter the type of clothing somebody was wearing,” said Chelsea Cleary, a graduate assistant at 20:1 Prevention Program at Binghamton University; one of the partners of the Bundy’s exhibit.   The installation shows just that: at the exhibit, mannequins are dressed in different outfits ranging from a T-shirt and shorts to a jean jacket and pants, and even a prom dress.center_img Click here for more information. “I did the whole thing in one sitting and then I actually went to go get dinner. It was dark at that point and I had all that stuff in my mind. It was really impactful. It made me be more aware of my surroundings. It did make me really sad, and there were a lot of sad stories I connected with,” said freshman Emily Vega  B-U transfer student, Chris Pillay, added that “you’re really focused on people’s experiences and telling people’s stories, and I thought it was a lot more powerful for sure.”   In reality, organizers and advocates say sexual assault or violence can happen to anyone at anytime.  The topic of sexual assault on campuses is an ongoing conversation both at Binghamton University and nationwide. In fact, the ‘What Were You Wearing’ exhibition began back in 2014 and is featured on college campuses nationwide, including right here at Binghamton University. last_img read more
