marchers experienced in the Quad in the April 14, 1988 edition of the Dickinsonian.
A lecture was given by Christopher Simpson on March 25, 1997 in Weiss Center for the Arts about "Comfort Women" who were victims of sexual enslavement during World War II.Â The talk accompanied an exhibit in the Trout Gallery on the same subject.Â The talk was sponsored by the Sociology, History, and Anthropology Departments, the Women's Studies and International Studies Programs, the Clarke Center, the Commission on the Status of Women, and the Trout Gallery.
