"Let's Talk About Down There" an evening with Dr. Jennifer Lincoln

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM, Evanston

Let's Talk About Down There" an evening with an OBGYN, talking about the things you never get to talk about (but want to!)  Part comedy show, part Ted talk, part sex education crash course, this event is like hanging out with your best friend OBGYN at a coffee shop where you get the answers to all the stuff you really wanted to know in high school health class...but you were too afraid to ask (or let's be real, no one would have told you the truth anyway).  Join Dr. Jennifer Lincoln, board-certified OBGYN and author of "Let's Talk About Down There: An OBGYN Answers All your Burning Questions...Without Making You Feel Embarrassed for Asking", for a night of myth-busting, laughing, and learning all about your body. She'll share her story of her Catholic high school sex education (it involves a nun and a salad) and how she came to fight for ending vaginal shame and advocating for the education young people need and deserve. All while answering your anonymous questions and realizing it can actually be really fun to learn about the vulva.  With over 2.7 million followers across TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube, Dr. Lincoln's specialty is talking about topics that might seem embarrassing like it's no big deal (because it isn't) and making everyone feel comfortable, educated, and empowered.  This event is for ANYONE who wants to learn the facts about sex, periods, birth control, masturbation and more. And yes, she's got info for the guys who do not want to miss their chance to hear it straight from the expert.  *Lots of fun giveaways during the show, so register today!*

National Clothesline Project

All day, Off-Campus

As shared by The National Clothesline Project, in the summer of 1990, activist groups on Cape Cod, Massachusetts developed a program that sought to educate, break the silence and bear witness to violence against women. This small, core group, many of whom had experienced some form of personal violence were inspired by the AIDS quilt activism and developed this “In-your-face" educational and healing tool. This tradition continues today with a much more accurate and expansive lens on the wide array of intersectional identities of folks who have experienced various of forms of violence, including but not limited to sexual violence, intimate partner violence, and stalking. Join NU’s Speak for Change at the Lakefill for a public display of support and affirmations for these stories. Participants are welcome to decorate a t-shirt of their own to be displayed or bear witness to what others have created.
