PAVE’s blog has been moved from Blogger to Tumblr, a platform where we will be able to better reach our supporters and get our message out into the public.
If you have a Tumblr account, please follow our page for consistent updates about PAVE events and news, interesting stories related to violence prevention as well as general amusements. Also, if you know anyone else with a Tumblr who would be interested in PAVE’s mission, please pass the link along. The more awareness of these issues there is, the less often they will happen. PAVE’s new blog is one more step in that direction.

Join PAVE in the Phillips Room of Ogg Hall tonight, Tuesday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m., to watch and discuss “Waitress.” The movie tells the story of a woman in an abusive marriage looking to use her baking skills to escape her controlling husband.
There will be a funny movie, thoughtful discussion and lots of free baked goods, including pie! We hope to see you there.

Three women sit on a bench outside of a the small-town diner where they work as waitresses. They start up what appears to be a conversation familiar to them. Dawn: “But now here you are [Jenna], married to this handsome guy … who’s got very good hair, and pregnant with a little girl. But neither of us would trade places with you for one second, now would we Becky?”
Becky: “No we wouldn’t, Dawn, No we wouldn’t.”

While playing a pick-up game of volleyball the other night, I experienced a rude awakening: A friend of mine —who typically has a mild, friendly disposition — casually shouted, “Backhand that bitch!” after a team member spiked the ball with the back of his hand. I froze. “Did that really just happen?” I thought to myself. “Could someone drop such a sexually violent phrase without any apparent implications?” After the initial shock of the incident wore off, I realized just how influential those words were.
