Valentine’s Day used to combat violence

Neal Lyons (top left) visited the Diag to hear slam poets Angie Beatty (top right) and Dee Dee White (bottom right) speak out about violence against women for V–Day Feb. 14. Red ribbons bearing the words ‘Rape Free Zone’ (Bottom) were taped around the Diag and other campus buildings.

The rally was followed by a Women’s Forum and a performance of Eve Ensler’s ‘The Vagina Monologues.’ For more information on V-day at the University, visit the Web at, or send e-mail to (Photos by Marcia Ledford, U-M Photo Services)
