Power Holds 'Dance-In' Against Violence
Raising serious awareness through a fun time, Albion College's Power feminist group invites the community to a "dance strike" Thursday, February 14 at 5 p.m. The dancing takes place in front of Baldwin Hall, on Hannah Street between Cass and East Erie streets.
Power's dance strike is part of One Billion Rising, an international movement working to stop violence against women. "We wanted to do this to raise awareness for those without a voice," said Power member Ariel Farley. "This is a strike against rape and abuse but our strike is a dance."
Farley further pointed out that statistics indicate that one in three women will be the victim of rape or other physical abuse in her lifetime. "This means your mother, your grandmother, and your sister. One of them is or will be a victim," said Farley. Participating in the dance strike is "for them, for others, or for yourself."
This event is free and open to the public. It is not expected to last longer than 30-45 minutes. For more information, contact Farley at or visit onebillionrising.org.
Where curious minds reach higher.
Science. Humanities. Fine arts. Social sciences. Our curriculum immerses you in these four fields of intellectual inquiry, then connects and expands your thinking through a senior Honors thesis.
From our home base inside the campus' historic Observatory building, students in the Prentiss M. Brown Honors Program have access to a number of challenging and rewarding experiences. We explore. We create. And we go places (like the Art Institute of Chicago and to Broadway shows around Michigan).
It’s a balance of rigorous academics and social support that works—our students have recently won a National Science Foundation research award, two Morris Udall awards, and a number of Fulbright fellowships.
We're glad you're thinking about Albion's Honors Program. We encourage you to explore our site, and to contact us with any questions.
