Action Against Sexual Violence (AASV) is a community united by a common vision. We view rape and other forms of sexual assault as part of a larger societal problem. We are working to change the structures that encourage and condone this kind of violence. Sexual assault is never the survivor’s fault. No one wants or deserves to be sexually assaulted. AASV provides for the Earlham Community education in topics involving sexual assault, the dangers of masculinity and violence issues. The hope of AASV is to raise awareness of the many conflicts and issues that pertain to and are a precursor of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Our mission is to explore and express our concerns for pressing health issues on a local, national, and global level through sharing ideas. We aim to share our knowledge with our communities by spreading awareness, teaching prevention, and taking action. We hope to learn from our communities and listen to their health concerns. There seems to be a large interest in public health among Earlham students, but there is no PH major and only a few classes offered that explore PH. While there is a Pre-Health club, it is mostly geared toward students interested in pursuing medical careers. We wish to look at the relationship between health issues and their social impact. Earlham needs a space where we can teach ourselves and gain more hands-on experience.
Open to any student who expresses an interest in PH.

The Womyn's Center is both a space on campus and an organization. The space is located on the 4th floor of Carpenter (go through the weaving studio). It is a safe space for women and it is the only place on campus that is reserved exclusively for women. The women-only policy refers to any person who self-identifies as a woman. This means that any female student is able to use the space to hang out, do homework, nap and meet friends whenever she wants. However, many of our activities are open to all genders. As an organization, we hope to build a cohesive community of women on campus and to strive toward feminist ideals. Our space is also open to other student organizations (such as FDTF). We have meetings in the Womyn’s Center every week to plan upcoming events and discussions. All women are welcome to attend.
