Gender-based Violence Prevention
Step in, Speak Out (SISO) is the University of Oklahoma's mandated sexual misconduct prevention training. This 50-minute training, presented by peer educators, educates students on topics of consent, sexual assault, harassment, active-bystander intervention strategies, and resources.
**This program is mandatory for all incoming freshman and transfer students.**
Attend this two-hour training to learn how you can use your influence, popularity, and credibility to help end sexual assault and other forms of sexual misconduct on our campus.
The Vagina Monologues is a national production that happens during the month of February. OU conducts its own student performance in the Meacham Auditorium for two nights. All ticket sales go to the Women’s Resource Center and the V-Day Foundation.
The Red Flag Campaign focuses on dating violence among college students. In February we place red lawn flags around the south oval to raise awareness about dating violence on campus, followed by a poster campaign and tabling event. 1 in 5 college relationships experience dating violence through isolation, emotional abuse, or excessive jealousy.
A celebration of men who’ve pledged to help end violence against women! Men who promise “to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls” can sport white ribbons. Women can wear teal ribbons to raise awareness, too. During this week in April we feature posters of OU men who have taken the pledge.
