College Safety For Women

For most young women, college is typically their first experience living away from home. They’re excited, naive, and believe themselves world-wise. Unfortunately, regardless of geography or socio-economic circumstances, 1 in 3 will be victims of dating abuse, sexual assault, date rape drugs, hate crimes, or just random violence.

Dallas Jessup of Vancouver, a Vanderbilt University junior, created a way to reduce those numbers. She put together an all-volunteer cast and crew to produce the film Just Yell Fire: Campus Life to raise awareness among her peers of the unique dangers girls face at college, to give them some danger avoidance strategies, and some street fighting get-away moves to earn a few seconds to get away from danger when it finds them.
