· Tabling by members of Omega Phi Beta Sorority Inc. from noon-4 p.m. in the Tillman Lobby. The chapter will distribute lollipops with facts about domestic violence facts. As part of a "Why I Need Feminism" campaign, members will ask passers-by to write a message about why they need feminism.
· A panel discussion titled Violence Against Women: International Perspectives will begin at 3:30 p.m. in LH-8. The Binghamton University Globalistas (BUGs) and the Center for Civic Engagement are organizing the panel, which will be moderated by David Cingranelli, professor of political science.
· A “Ladies Night” program led by resident assistant Alison Mackenzie at 7 p.m. in the Cleveland Hall Main Lounge. Participants will discuss some of the issues that affect women all over the world every day and how college students struggle with a lot of those same things. This will be a safe space for intimate discussion with the feel of a sleepover.
Faculty speakers at the panel discussion will include F. Sonia Arellano-López of the Institute of Global Cultural Studies; Joshua Price, associate professor of sociology; and Mahua Sarkar, associate professor of sociology, Asian and Asian-American studies and women’s studies.
