Student Outreach Services is an active student group on the UIC campus. The mission of S.O.S is to create student program addressing and educating the great UIC community about issues surrounding violence against women. Over the last 4 years we have organized the all of the annual UIC V-Day initiative performances of Eve Ensler's “Vagina Monologues”. We have also organized “Take back the Night Rally & March”, The Clothesline Project, clothing drive for an area shelter and other V-Week activities. We have also been a part of Women's History Month planning and volunteered with the UIC Office of Women's Affairs.
This year V-Week features our annual performance of Eve Ensler's “ The Vagina Monologues ” as well as a performance of Ntozake Shange's highly acclaimed play “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is E'nuff” .
V-Week is more than just a couple of shows; it's part of a worldwide movement to eradicate violence against women. During the months of February & March we will join thousands of other productions worldwide to raise money to donate to area rape and domestic violence crisis centers and shelters as well as other women's groups. The mission of the UIC's V-Week movement holds true that at the heart of violence against women is oppression in all its forms; that to end violence against women we must confront sexism, racism, homophobia, abelism, ageism and classism in our work, educational and personal lives. We hope that you join us in this movement!
Please join us in working towards a safer UIC for everyone!
