April 23rd from 2-4pm

Thrive Virginia is marking Sexual Assault Awareness Month with an art installation at the Quinton Community Center in New Kent (3041 New Kent Highway).

The exhibit is aimed at breaking down the myths and victim-blaming belief that what someone wears encourages or asks for an assault. Victims of sexual violence are often asked this question by officials, peers, family, and friends. Victims of sexual violence are never responsible for the harm done to them.  

Inspired by the poem “What I was wearing” by Mary Simmerling, Jen Brockman and Dr. Mary Wyandt-Hiebert installed the first “What Were You Wearing?” exhibit at the University of Arkansas in 2014.

WARNING: This exhibit can be emotionally triggering for people impacted by sexual assault.

Visit the Thrive Virginia website for more information on the services they offer.
