Sexual Assault Education & Prevention Program

What Were You Wearing Art Installation

The What Were You Wearing exhibit is an installation answering the question frequently asked of survivors. This exhibit features narratives and re-creations of outfits based on survivors' experiences. This event occurs yearly during Sexual Assault Awareness Month. It is hosted both in the Carlson Library on Main Campus and the Mulford Library on Health Science Campus. Please join us to unlearn one of our culture's most prevalent rape myths.

It is presented by the Title IX Office & hosted in University Libraries. The Spring 2020 dates are:

Monday, April 6 – 9, 2020, Carlson Library, Room 1005, Main Campus. There will be an opening reception on Monday, April 6th, at 10:30am featuring opening remarks.

Monday, April 13 – 16, 2020, Mulford Library, Health Science Campus

If you have a disability and require an accommodation during this event, please contact the Title IX Office at 419-530-4191. Accommodation requests may also be emailed to 


The collection captures real life narratives from our UToledo Community including faculty, staff, and students. If you would like to submit your narrative and a detailed description of the outfit you were wearing to the Title IX Office for possible display in our installation, you can do so anonymously by clicking the link below.
