The annual Clothesline Project is an international advocacy movement that allows participants to creatively express their feelings about power-based violence by decorating shirts with phrases of their own choosing and colors that symbolize different types of violence.

Our annual Take Back the Night event includes an activist rally and march.  TBTN spreads awareness of and speaks out against sexual violence.  The simple idea behind the event's name is that people, but especially women, should be able to walk alone at night without fearing victimization.  While the original name holds, FemCom aims our sights on Taking Back the Culture.  TBTN marches are an international initiative and often held at colleges and universities.
