‘What Were You Wearing?’
A Survivors Art Installation

A chunky sweater and a modest, black skirt; a blue tank top and athletic shorts: These were the clothing items worn by victims of sexual assault or harassment when they were accosted. These are the types of innocuous outfits you will see hanging in the Cardinal Lounge of UofL’s student activities center, there to demonstrate the absurdity of the question often asked when the details of a sexual assault are revealed: “What were you wearing?” The exhibit comes from a 2013 University of Arkansas installation inspired by a poem. Outfits are accompanied by a short explanation from the victim. The installation also will be at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law Library.
