This girl is ballsy and we don’t blame her for fighting for what’s right.
Columbia University Senior Carries Her Mattress As Performance Art to Protest School Not Expelling Her Attacker
According to The Columbia Spectator:
For as long as her alleged rapist goes to Columbia, Emma Sulkowicz, CC ’15, intends to carry around a dorm room mattress wherever she goes.
Sulkowicz—who has spoken out against the University’s sexual assault policies and who filed a police report against her alleged rapist in May—chose for her visual arts senior thesis a performance art piece titled “Mattress Performance” or “Carry That Weight.”
Emma is not alone either. 23 students have filed a federal complaint against the school for failing to protect them.
Sounds like Columbia isn’t exactly the best place to be a woman.
