KEEPING TEENAGE GIRLS SAFE FROM VIOLENCE02/10/04
The Ophelia Project - Tampa Bay is sponsoring Self Protection & Safety classes designed just for teen girls & adults on February 14, 2004. The classes will be at seven area YMCA family branches, taught by experienced, safety professionals. All the hot teen safety topics will be covered - Street Safety (malls and parking lots), Internet Safety (instant messaging, chat rooms), and Relationship Safety.
The Self Protection classes are part of an international movement called V-Day, a public awareness day to end violence against women and girls. It will take place on ValentineÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Day as a reminder that most violence against women and girls is done by someone they love. Our guest was Dr. Norrine Russell, a psychologist with the project.
