Empowering College Freshmen Women to Make Healthy Relationship Choices

COLLEGE TAKEOVER

PURPOSE

The H.E.R. Power College Takeover gives college freshmen women tools to increase their awareness about and prevent mental and emotional abuse.

WHY?

  • As many as one quarter of female students experience sexual assault over the course of their college career

  • 53% of victims of domestic violence were abused by a current or former boyfriend  

  • 13% of college women report they were forced to have sex by a dating partner.

  • Sometimes college students feel trapped by the closed environment of many campuses.

  • Students may feel isolated from their personal support networks and resources for help because the student is away from home for the first time.

  • Some students may not define their experience as abusive.

This abuse often starts with emotional and mental violations that are ignored or improperly defined.

WHAT WE DO

  • Builds young women's emotional and mental fortitude.

  • Gives them the tools to recognize the early signs of abuse.

  • Provides local and national resources for those in abusive relationships.
