On Sept. 24 at 1 p.m., approximately 100 Vassar students, faculty, administrators and community members joined protesters across the United States in a walkout entitled #BelieveSurvivors. The walkout demonstrated support for survivors of sexual violence, including Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, who have recently come forward with accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh. At Vassar, members of the community gathered outside Main Building to stand in solidarity. President of the College Elizabeth Bradley thanked campus organizers for encouraging everyone to think through this issue. She stated, “Thank you for teaching us, thank you for convening us so we can really think deeply about this issue in its historical context, thinking about what it means for each of us in the culture we’re complicit with.”
