GLI Club fundraiser raises rape awareness

Marcella Park

The Girls Learn International club posted flyers and held a bake sale May 24, promoting awareness about rape culture and raising $855.

The money from the bake sale will pay for tuition, uniforms, supplies and transportation for girls going to the SMS Sobhodero School in Pakistan.

The club had originally intended to host an “advocacy week” addressing separate topics including rape culture on separate days.

“We want people to know that rape is never the victim’s fault, but the perpetrator’s,” GLI co-president Sarika Pandrangi ’13 said.
