As a women’s college that is gender diverse, Mount Holyoke recognizes the unique and particular ways that women are often subjected to gender-based violence. The ongoing targeting of women across all racial groups has not abated. We believe deeply that in our work we must be vigilant in speaking up against these injustices and ensuring that survivors are able to tell their stories in ways that support their emotional, psychological, spiritual and physical safety whenever possible. Elizabeth Smart is an outspoken survivor who has chosen to be visible in her activism and work to amplify the voices of those who are not able to speak up for themselves or whose stories are erased from national discourses. We are honored that she will join the Mount Holyoke College community for this very special dialogue during our Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) programming.
