Fanshawe is sending out a good message with St. Patrick’s Day t-shirts. The colleges fashion marketing and management program teamed up with Fanshawe’s sexual violence prevention advisor to bring awareness to issues.
They put together a series of t-shirts based off of traditional St. Patrick’s Day messages. Instead of putting the usual “kiss me I’m Irish” they would say “ask to kiss me I’m Irish” or “you can’t get lucky without consent”
Sexual violence numbers are shocking and around St. Patrick’s Day they can even get worse.“It’s important to challenge some of the traditional messaging that we see around these holidays because every person has the right to decide what sexual contact they want and don’t want,” Fanshawe’s sexual violence prevention advisor, Leah Marshall, said.
One in four women during their college or university career could be sexually assaulted. The fashion program is made up of mostly women so they wanted to take action.
Every year at this time the school does something to bring up awareness regarding sexual assault.
The t-shirts we’re sold from March 12 until St. Patrick’s Day at the campus boutique “Live Chic”.
Proceeds from the sales of t-shirts are going directly The Children’s Health Foundation in London.
