Take Back the Night Walk - Weber State University

Since the 1960’s, Take Back the Night has empowered and supported survivors/victims, helped those in pain, and asserted that it is unacceptable for people to live in fear for their safety. Take Back the Night rallies, marches, candlelight vigils, and speak-outs are the means by which we show our solidarity. We invite you to join the movement to end, and raise awareness to, sexual and interpersonal violence and demonstrate support for survivors and victims on our campus and in our community. 


Our event will include a march in downtown Ogden, beginning at 7:00pm on Friday, April 14, at the Ogden Amphitheater. This will then be followed by a vigil and speak-out to honor victims and survivors, where members of the community will be invited to share their experiences and support.

The route for the march is ADA Accessible.

Film Festival - Through Women's Eyes

We are thrilled to announce the first Utah Women of the UN Film Festival fundraiser. This festival is dedicated to women's issues and social justice issues around the world. The festival will be held April 6th through April the 8th, 2017 at the University of Utah Bld. 73 room 110 332 South 1400 East, SLC, Utah. Films will be shown at 7 pm - 9 pm all three nights.


The festival will begin on April 6, 2017 with five short student films produced through the "Through the Lens" program at the University of Utah, Department of Humanities. The five films are:


1. Diego’s Dream. Diego's Dream aired at Sundance in the short film category and has been viewed at the White House.
2. If This Is Heaven, Give Me Hell, this film was shown at the White House.
3. Dark Side of the Lake
4. Family in Crisis
5. Michael’s World


After the viewing a panel discussion with the filmmakers about the social justice issues that they highlighted will occur.


On April 7, 2017 we will present the United Nations Film "Frame by Frame." This film highlights photojournalism and women's issues in Afghanistan. A panel discussion will occur after this film.


On April 8, 2017, our final feature will be a film generously donated but the Utah Film Center. "A Revolution in Four Seasons" is a seminal film which tells the story of two women with opposing political views fighting for their different version of a democratic future for Tunisia, the country that started the Arab Spring. This timely and insightful documentary traces the work of two public female figures and the obstacles they face as outspoken women dealing with Islamic extremism. A panel discussion will follow the film.
