It tells a story of Black women activists and artists who lived and worked on Chicago’s South Side by taking readers on a tour of relevant landmarks and locations, mapping how Chicago’s Black women activists organized to make the city work better for themselves, their loved ones and their communities.

    Check out the flyer for this year's date, time, and location

    Each year, students, staff, and faculty gather to speak out against and resist sexual, gender, racial, and other forms of violence within DePaul as well as in the broader community and world. The event includes a speak out, a rally and march through campus, as well as community support circles that center people’s stories on the impact of sexual and other forms of violence on all of us.

  • Vagina Monologues

    Vagina Monologues

    February 8-11, 2018 | 7:30pm
    Cortelyou Commons (2324 N. Fremont, Chicago, 60614)

    The Vagina Monologues at DePaul offers an intersectional body of experiences that are inclusive of different identities and relationships to gender violence and abuse. As opposed to centering “woman” with “vagina,” and white mainstream feminism, DePaul VMONS fosters a more inclusive space where women of color and trans people perform, collaborate and participate in the show to talk about their own experiences with violence as well.
