The Gender and Women's Studies Program Kicks Off #KSULOVESEX Month


KENNESAW, Ga. (Feb 8, 2016) — The Gender and Women's Studies Program, with The Interpersonal Violence Prevention Project and the KSU Women's Resource and Interpersonal Violence Prevention Center, is presenting a month of films, activities, and events structured around the topic of Love and Sex. Students will engage with these topics on Twitter, using the hashtag #KSULOVESEX.

The events began on Friday, February 5th with a screening of the controversial documentary The Hunting Ground. This documentary follows undergraduate rape survivors pursuing justice in a system set against them. Following the screening, students, staff, and faculty held a discussion of the film and sexual violence on college campuses, moderated by Dr. Corrine McNamara, Associate Professor of Psychology, and Shameka Wilson, Director of the Women's Resource and Interpersonal Violence Center. 

On February 9th and 25th, GWST will co-sponsor "Sex and Hot Chocolate Q & A." Students can tweet their questions about sexual health and relationships to #KSULOVESEX and have them answered by Shameka Wilson. 

Shameka Wilson will hold the ONE Choice Bystander Intervention program on February 19th. This three-hour training engages participants in education that will expand their knowledge base and skill set to take action when they witness an act of interpersonal violence. Space is limited! If you are interested in registering, contact Shameka at

The events will culminate in a two-day event at the Zuckerman Museum of Art to view the groundbreaking exhibit Art Aids America. This event introduces and explores the spectrum of artistic response to AIDS. Art Aids American is organized by the Tacoma Art Museum in partnership with The Bronx Museum of the Arts.
