<Workshops on Unwanted Sexual Activity Attention>
<Introductory Remarks GHL>
OUTLINE OF THE FIRST PART OF THE WORKSHOP
The problem of acquaintance rape and unwanted sexual attention is [Written in above line: <^certainly very>] real and finally being talked about. The purpose of this workshop is to help us become as knowledgeable as possible: [written on above line: about the problem] we will focus on becoming more aware, raising our consciousness about the problem and clarifying our values. After coming to a better understanding of the issues, we will turn to implications.
My own view is that we are dealing with a very significant, troublesome and complex issue. We have tried to design a workshop that will help us better understand the issues so that when we are thinking about College policies, sexuality education, rape awareness education, counseling and handling discipline cases we will produce statements and programs that speak in appropriate ways to various forms of behavior and the ways we deal with them.
The workshop will start out looking at the highlights of data that have been gathered elsewhere and on the Oberlin campus and then at some actual cases that have occurred within the past year in the College. This part of the program is aimed at helping each of us become more aware of the problems.
We will then turn to raising our consciousness by looking at sex roles and responsibilities, i.e. where women are coming from and where men are coming from and how these roles get translated into the sexual games people play. A summary of the thinking of four people who have given a good deal of attention to these matters will be presented with an opportunity for discussion to
follow. The hope is that by looking at the way knowledgeable people have conceptualized their sense of what is going on in the behaviors of women and men, we can expand our own capacity to look at these issues with some new understandings. Following these presentations we will again have an opportunity for small group discussions in an effort to sharpen our own thinking and values.
At the end of the workshop, we will have a chance to talk about implications and where we go next.

 It seems that Sherry Gutman (see document 7) influenced the outline of the workshop, as indicated by a June 15 communication to George Langeler in which she writes “Here is the latest draft of the Workshop outline.” A May 21 Memo indicates that Janet Stocks, (Co-Op Area Coordinator, Rape Education Coordinator, Department of Residential Life and Services) and John Thompson (Director of Psychological Services) were also involved in the creation of the workshop (Subgroup I. Series 14. Box 7. Dean of Students Papers, O.C.A.).
