12 Mar Enderun holds INSPIRIEREN – Stories of Jose Rizal in Germany
Here in Enderun Colleges, we hope to raise more awareness about gender equality and violence against women. We must be socially responsible not just within the campus but also with the communities outside.
With this, the Social Orientation & Community Development (SOCD) together with the Office of the Vice President and SPARK! Philippines has partnered to bring an exhibit to Enderun Colleges this March. The exhibit is entitled #DontTellMeHowToDress. The “Don’t Tell Me How to Dress” features representations of the clothes that 11 Filipina survivors wore when they were sexually harassed or abused. The clothes challenge the destructive belief that the way a woman dresses instigates her assault. Exhibitors implore viewers to break this stigma — sexual violence is never the victim’s fault.

We are planning to do a college forum inviting not just the Enderun Community but also other schools nearby, our partner communities, and sectors that would want to know more and help us in our war against violence in all genders.
The Enderun Colleges through its Social Orientation & Community Development (SOCD) Department supports the UN Sustainable Goals. SOCD works in innovation to create a world with positive and sustainable change through developing sustainable programs that caters to answer the call to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. With this, Enderun’s Social Orientation & Community Development (SOCD) together with SPARK! (Samahan ng mga Pilipina para sa Reporma at Kaunlaran) Philippines in partnership with the Embassy of Sweden in Manila, UNFPA Philippines, and Empower will be holding the Don’t Tell Me How To Dress Exhibit at Enderun.
The Don’t Tell Me How To Dress Exhibit features the actual clothes that 11 Filipina survivors wore when they were sexually harassed and abused. The clothes challenge the destructive belief that the way a woman dresses instigates her assault. Through this exhibit, we hope to break the stigma following that sexual violence is never the victim’s fault.
We would like to invite you to join us on March 25, 2019 (Monday) at 10:00am at the Business Administration (BA) Building Lobby in Enderun Colleges. We are expecting over 50 participants, coming from different sectors and walks of life to witness this momentous event.
We are hoping for your most positive response. Please let us know if you can join us in the ribbon cutting ceremony. Please do RSVP on or before March 23, 2019 (Saturday). We would love to see you there!
