denim day [26 Apr 2005|11:40pm]

tomorrow, wed, april 27, is denim day.
everyone participating should wear denim tomorrow as part of a national protest against sexual harrassment and rape.
inspired by a trial where the guy got off with the excuse, "she wanted it because she was wearing tight jeans."

i thought you guys might appreciate this-- WEAR YOUR DENIM TOMORROW.

(late notice i realize, but better late then never.)

the tshirt sale is continuing. If you would like a woman's shirt bring $8 and if you would like a men's shirt, bring $6. (The sex refers to the cut of the shirts (men's are typically looser)

PLEASE READ [01 Dec 2004|06:45pm]

Definitely worth reading....

This is from a woman traveling from Virginia to Louisiana. Something very serious to pay attention to. Criminals are coming up with
craftier, less threatening methods of attack, so we have to be extra cautious. Read on...

I live in Alexandria, VA, but I often work in Lafayette, LA, staying with friends when I'm there. As you know from America's Most Wanted TV
program, as well as the news media, there is a serial killer in the Lafayette area. I just want to let you know about an incident" that happened to me a few weeks ago, and could have been deadly. At first I didn't go to the police or anyone with it because I didn't realize how serious this
encounter was. But since I work in a jail and I told a few people about it, it wasn't long before I was paraded into Internal Affairs to tell them my story.

It was approximately 5:15 a.m. in Opelousas, La. I had stayed with a friend there and was on my way to work. I stopped at the Exxon/Blimpie Pie station to get gas. I got $10 gas and a Diet Coke I took into the store two $5 bills and one $1 bill (just enough to get my stuff). As I pulled away from the store, a man approached my truck from the back side of the store (an unlit area). He was an "approachable-looking" man (clean cut, clean shaven, dressed well, etc.). He walked up to my window and knocked. Since I'm very paranoid and "always looking for the rapist or killer," I didn't open the window ... I just asked what he wanted. He raised a $5 bill to my window and said, "You dropped
this." Since I knew I had gone into the store with a certain amount of money, I knew I didn't drop it. When I told him it wasn't mine, he
began hitting the window and door, screaming at me to open my door, and insisting that I had dropped the money! At that point, I just drove away as fast as I could. After talking to the Internal Affairs Department and describing the man I saw, and the way he escalated from calm and polite to angry and volatile....it was determined that I could have possibly encountered the serial killer myself. Up to this point, it had been
unclear as to how he had gained access to his victims, since there has been no evidence of forced entry into victim's homes, cars, etc. And the fact that he has been attacking in the daytime, when women are less likely to have their guard up,means he is pretty BOLD. So think about it...what gesture is nicer than returning money to someone that dropped it????? How many times would you have opened your
window (or door) to get your money and say thank you.... because if the person is kind enough to return something to you, then he can't really be a threat....can he???? Please be cautious! This might not have been the serial killer...but anyone that gets that angry over someone not accepting money from them, can't have honorable intentions. The most important thing to note is that his reaction was NOT WHAT I EXPECTED! A total surprise! But what might have happened if I had opened my door? I shudder to think! Forward this to everyone you
know....maybe they can be as fortunate as I was!

P.S. from the Sender: Ladies, really DO forward this to EVERYONE you know. Even if this man wasn't a serial killer, he looked nice, he seemed polite, he was apparently doing an act of kindness, but HE WAS NOT A NICE PERSON!!!

PLEASE warn other woman of this

WOW [23 Nov 2004|10:27pm]

I am still in total awe of the protest that everyone contributed to on Sunday. I don't think it would have been as amazing or powerful if any one of you had been missing. I am so thankful to have found a community where women are willing to work together and not against one another for their own personal growth. I have grown so close to so many of you and I honestly love every minute of it, thank you so much to everyone who put the work in to the protest, I am sure we will be holding many more :)

HI! [21 Nov 2004|09:17pm]

Hi! I'm Monika and I'm new to this community. I actually joined because today on my trip to arron brothers I passed laurel canyon and ventura blvd and saw you protesting. The moment I saw a feminist protest against sexual discrimination I began honking and waving and such and then found myself screaming and was very excited, a member of your group came up to my car and gave my friend a WE flyer and I just read it and thought that what your group is doing is very cool and I would love to become a part of it(even though I go to another school) and I would love it if I could participate in your next protest/gathering, whatever. your group really made my day alot better, for someone who has been harrassed a vast amount of times and gets really pissed off and feels very useless, this group is a breath of fresh air. When I tell my friends things like "some one followed me off the freeway today." and they say," oh my god, get over it" I feel angry at what they've been taught, I feel insulted that they think this is no big deal and that they think it useless to take a stance against it. I hope that I can help with your group so that it will become known that being harrased or discriminated against as a woman is not "ok". so thank you.
