Colorful T-shirts hanging on a clothesline in the main quad at Fullerton College. Defined as “sexual activity when consent is not obtained or freely given,” sexual violence is common, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. More than half of women and almost one in three men have experienced sexual violence in their lifetimes, and one in four women and roughly one in 26 men have experienced completed or attempted rape, the agency says. The T-shirts are part of an impactful installation hosted by the nonprofit Waymakers for sexual assault awareness month, recognized in April.
