On Feb 25 and 26, a new campus initiative is asking for volunteers to come to the JDUC and have their pictures taken as part of an awareness campaign about men's violence against women.

Organized by a loose-knit collective of students, faculty and staff, this event asks members of the Queen's community to take a stand against violence by having their photograph taken.

On March 10, selected portraits will be displayed in print and digital formats in the Atrium of the Agnes Etherington Art Gallery.

Student organizer Kate McMurray believes a picture can have a powerful impact. Not only does it cut through the visual clutter on campus, “it makes you accountable,” she says. While the photo shoot event is open to all members of the community, McMurray says she's hopeful she'll see plenty of male faces in front of the lens.
