By Mikaela Coon
Announcement | February 4, 2010

HUTCHINSON, Kan. - Women's Week, February 7-14, 2010 in Hutchinson, will be an opportunity to grow, mind, body and spirit! Participate in concerts, the poetry slam, the interactive mural at Gallery 7, and other events. Attend one or several of the 18 different workshops led by community members at local venues and donate to the cause of the Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Center.

The SA/DVC is an agency of advocates and volunteers dedicated to the vital work of preventing teen dating violence, domestic violence and sexual assault. They provide confidential, non-judgmental support to victims and survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, the families and friends. They serve Harper, Kingman, Marion, McPherson, Reno and Rice Counties.

Through Women's Week, the community is invited to learn more about the services of the SA/DVC and consider its role in ending domestic violence and sexual assault.

Women's Week will generate attention, coordinate a community response to the reality of gender-based violence, and affect change in the explicit and implicit attitudes within the community in order to support women.

Visit the Women's Week blog to view the schedule of events and workshops!

Participating groups, venues and individuals now include the Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Center, Hutchinson Community College Theater Fraternity Delta Psi Omega, V-Day Hutchinson 2010 "The Vagina Monologues," the Young Professionals of Reno County, Reno County Health Department, Jana's Campaign, Michelle Monger, Bob Henderson, the Male Involvement Network, The Witness Project, Park Place Christian Church, Dr. Bill Davis, The Yoga Loft, Gallery 7, Healing Artz Studio, Oh Scrap! and Stuff, Charlie's, Brooks' on Main Street, and Metropolitan Coffee.
