What Were You Wearing

What Were You Wearing?

What Were You Wearing is a visual display that the YWCA shares with the community each year during Sexual Assault Awareness Month.  The installations show real stories from survivors of sexual assault, and the clothing they were wearing when it happened.


The aim of the exhibit is to challenge the idea that provocative clothing is the cause of the sexual assault, a stereotype used for victim blaming.

All stories are anonymous and may be used in future What Were You Wearing Installations.
