'What Were You Wearing?' Art Installation tells stories of sexual assault survivors [VIDEO]

Ohio University kicked off the fall semester with an art installation designed to share stories of sexual assault and survival while challenging the victim-blaming behavior that often accompanies these incidents of violence.

The University's “What Were You Wearing?” Survivor Art Installation opened to the public on Aug. 30 and will run through Thursday, Sept. 13, in the Trisolini Gallery on the fourth floor of Baker University Center.

The exhibit features descriptions of clothing that was worn when survivors were sexually assaulted accompanied by clothing, found by event organizers, that closely mirrors those descriptions or, in some cases, the actual clothing that was worn during the assault.
