One in Four: Men Against Rape

For my multimedia story, I plan to cover a seminar called, "One in Four." One in Four is an event sponsored by MEN AGAINST RAPE to educate and inform the men of Towson University on what they can do to prevent sexual assult. One and Four originates from the statistic that "One in four college women have survived rape or attempted rape."

I learned of this event through the Towerlight and thought that not only would it be just an event to cover for class, but an informative awareness meeting about a serious topic prevalent nearby or on college campuses worldwide.

The ad reads the following:
How to Help a Sexual Assult Survivor: What Men Can Do
Thursday, October 30 7:30 p.m.
Chesapeake Rooms
A program for men only

For potential interview sources, I want to talk to the program coordinator, students in attendence and persons of interest that attend the seminar who could provide additional perspectives.

Coordinator Questions:
1.) Who is behind the idea of the program?
2.) What inspired or made you want to do this program for students?
3.) What do you hope students will learn from this seminar?
4.) Is there another seminar coming up or contact information for students?
5.) What do you feel is the main cause behind rape and why does it occur?

Student Questions:
1.) Why did you decide to attend the seminar tonight?
2.) Did you find the presentation informative or helpful?
3.) (tentative) Do you know anyone who has been sexually assulted?
4.) What do you feel is your responsibility as a man against those who look to harm women?

Photo Possibilities:
1.) Shot of the audience in attendance
2.) Shot of coordinator lecturing
3.) Shot of logos, diagrams, phamplets, handouts.
4.) The overall room with everyone.
5.) Looks of the crowd listening and focused.

Hi Brian,
How did it go?
Be sure to include audience reaction.
Did you find a certain issue to focus on?
