Taking Back the Night in Chicago

In recognition of April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Huffington Post  published a blog by IMPACT Core Skills grad (WGS150) Nancy Matthews who is also Professor of Justice Studies and Women's and Gender's Studies at Northeastern Illinois University. In "Taking Back the Night in Chicago," Nancy opens with acknowledgment that violence in Chicago often makes the news but focuses on the constructive ways that students at Northeastern Illinois University are creating space to address and counter violence in the student-organized Take Back the Night program. Nancy mentions IMPACT Instructor Martha Thompson (also Professor Emeritus in Sociology and Women's and Gender Studies at Northeastern) and the self-defense program she did for Take Back the Night.
