Founder and Co-Artistic Director of Price of Silence Jason Jeremias

“I’m from ‘Price of Silence’, the global performing arts collective for women’s rights. We are here because campus impunity towards sexual violence is epidemic throughout this country, and it is another component of gender apartheid. We have to confront and get rid of this issue more so we can start teaching boys in college to learn the dangers of misogyny and what that means in terms of campus culture. Because campus culture shouldn’t be rape culture.”

Actress at Price of Silence, student at Purchase College Eden Ferrer

“Our main reason for being out here is to make a lot more action happen and less talk about this issue, because talk isn’t getting us anywhere.”
