Take Back the Night
Take Back the Night (TBTN) is the capstone annual event that brings together the entire campus in support of victims and survivors of domestic violence, as well as other forms of interpersonal violence. This educational, interactive, peer-led event is fundamental in the movement to prevent interpersonal violence from happening in the future. TBTN features a documentary screening, mock trial, speak out, resource fair, and protest march, open to all UNLV students, faculty, and staff.
Vagina Monologues
Each February the UNLV Jean Nidetch Women’s Center presents a benefit reading of Eve Ensler’s award-winning play The Vagina Monologues. UNLV Women’s Center joins the V-Day campaign, a global activist movement to end violence against women through benefit productions of The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works. Proceeds from the event benefit the UNLV CARE Survivor Fund, which helps victim/survivors of interpersonal violence with transportation, health and emergency costs.
Quiz Cart
Twice a month, we adorn our office’s pink golf cart with twinkle lights and window paint to transform it into the “Reality Ride Quiz Cart”. The goal of the “Reality Ride Quiz Cart” is to increase the visibility of the Jean Nidetch Women's Center sexual assault and relationship violence programs and maintain inclusion of marginalized communities. The “Reality Ride Quiz Cart” or “Quiz Cart” takes place in the evening as a direct effort to engage non-traditional students in the anti-violence movement. The Quiz Cart asks questions about sexual assault, domestic violence, and stalking. Every participant gets a prize whether or not they answer questions correctly. The Quiz Cart’s inaugural year (2014-2015) saw great success with 398 participants. The 2015-2016 school year is off to a great start with 41 participants during our first night!
