Walking around campus it’s hard to miss the bright, blaring posters advertising “Sexual Responsibility Week” here at Wash. U. On one appears the silhouette of a woman wearing nothing but heels, her clearly visible nipples up at attention and her back arched to accentuate her rounded buttocks. Another poster shows the outline of a naked woman kneeling on the ground, her legs splayed wide. Each poster features a naked (or near-naked) woman in a provocative, sexual pose accompanied by a one-word headline: “Sex.” The suggestions are clear: a woman’s body (and maybe even a woman herself, since there are no male images or couples anywhere to be found on these distasteful posters) is nothing more than a sex symbol.
