Take Back the Night 5K

We are putting together a Women’s Studies team for the Take Back the Night 5K. This is a race to promote awareness of violence against women and all proceeds will benefit the Johnson City Medical Center’s Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner’s Program. The race will take place on Saturday, March 26th, 2011 at 9:30 a.m. and will go through the Historic Tree Streets neighborhood and the ETSU campus.  Registration is at 8:30 a.m. on the day of the race. If you would like to join the team, you will need to fill out an individual registration form and pay the registration fee—$12 if you pay before March 18th or $15 after March 18th. After you register, contact Veronica Limeberry at zval3@goldmail.etsu.edu to be added to the team roster.

Individual forms need to be mailed to:

 Katelyn Kivett

About etsuwomenstudies

This blog is a collaborative effort from the students, faculty, and feminist souls in the East Tennessee State University Women's Studies Department. We simply want to share daily thoughts with the world and encourage not only feminist thought, but awareness, tolerance, diversity, equality, justice, and social progress. Women's Studies is an exciting, interdisciplinary area of study that celebrates women's lives. It examines how diverse women have contributed to history, social processes, culture, politics and economics, as well as how all of these have shaped women's experiences. Our program provides new ways of looking at common assumptions about femininity and masculinity and teaches students how to connect what they study with how they live and work. We also explore how gender intersects with ability, age, class, culture, ethnicity, nationality, race, religion, and sexuality. Our Leadership through Diversity focus promotes a creative struggle for justice and equality. We train graduates to be leaders in both civic engagement and the workforce. The Women's Studies Program at ETSU is comprised of dedicated faculty and staff and socially conscious students coming together from a wide range of disciplines.
