College Freshmen Respond To On-Campus Violence In Heartwarming Video

It's never too early to happy-cry.

Gina Vaynshteyn writes for HelloGiggles that her student Sierra Schultz submitted the above video response for an assignment in Vaynshteyn’s Rhetoric class. Schultz used her project to address violence on the San Diego State University campus:

Young men from Sigma Epsilon Phi and Delta Sigma Phi disrupted an on-campus march against sexual violence (Take Back The Night) by throwing sex toys and eggs at the young women, while yelling obscenities. The night after that, a young woman reported that someone had sexually assaulted her at party close to campus. Shortly after this, a female student reportedly told SDSU officials that six men tried to force her into their car.

In the video, Schultz and her friends help clarify what being a ‘feminist’ means. What an awesome group of 18-year-olds!
