Just heard from the University of Louisville’s PEACC Program that Thursday, October 23rd, U of L students will be observing “Thursday in Black.” Here’s the explanation:

“On this day we ask you wear black and a button or sticker that reads: “Ask Me About Thursdays in Black”. Wearing black indicates that you are tired of rape and violence in your community. It demonstrates a desire for a community where we can all walk safely without fear. Buttons and stickers available NOW! Thanks for participating! Info: contact PEACC at 852-2663.

We wish the program success, and are thinking about wearing black on Thursday ourselves in support and solidarity with our sisters and brothers down the street. We, too, are tired of sexual assault and violence, in any community.

About Ha_Qohelet

Ha_Qohelet is a transliteration of Hebrew definite article plus a feminine participle, all together meaning "the (feminine) one who assembles" or who calls together. Qohelet is the title of one of the books of the Hebrew Scripture, known in English as Ecclesiastes. The Women's Center at LPTS feels the epithet of Qohelet is a fitting one for what we do and are. The Women's Center is, indeed, a caller-together, a caller-to-wisdom, and an assembler -- of people, of ideas, of actions, and ultimately, we hope, of transformations in the world. In this context, Ha_Qohelet is the Director of the Women's Center, and Editor-in-Chief of Wimminwise.
