[Image of flyer with black background titled: "Flip the Script," and in a cardinal red box reads: "Are you interested in learning accessible self-defense techniques? Would you like to become a better advocate for yourself and all women? Are you interested in learning skills that will empower your resistance to sexual assault? Flip the Script is an evidence-based program, researched at the University of Windsor in Canada, that seeks to provide empowerment and physical and verbal self-defense training to women in order to avoid assault on college campuses. In a series of four evening workshops or over one weekend, facilitators will debunk rape myths and victim blaming, provide a space to explore relationship values, reinforce the belief that sexual assault is always the fault of the perpetrator, and teach verbal and physical resistance techniques." Below is an image of the side view of 6 books stacked with each edge reading, "don't be bossy," "be nice," "stop being so sensitive," "don't be a tease," "be a good girl," "smile and look pretty," and a speech bubble reading, "Do you think there's a problem with this script? We do. Let's flip the script."]

In the spring of 2018, Stanford University offered the Enhanced Assess, Acknowledge, & Act (EAAA) Sexual Assault Resistance Education Program ("Flip the Script") to undergraduate women--inclusive of trans women--as part as of a pilot program, with an eye to implementing the program more broadly in subsequent years. Flip the Script is implemented in parallel to a program specifically for men & will eventually be implemented in parallel with a program for trans and/or gender non-conforming folks that are currently in development. This is one piece of a comprehensive strategy undertaken at Stanford University to reduce sexual violence and harassment on our campus.
