California’s Chapman University teaches against rape with Snow White poster: ‘Sleeping people can’t say yes’

The Creating a Rape-free Environment for Students at Chapman University is using a classic Disney image to teach students about consent, sexual assault and rape. The large poster shows Prince Charming kissing Snow White to wake her from her sleep, but with a big warning:  “Sleeping people CAN’T say YES,” the poster states. “Anything but a yes is NO!” The poster also lays out a definition of consent: “conscious, freely given, and obvious.”

College Fix notes that “The poster is enclosed in a glass case and greets visitors as they exit the elevator at the popular Argyros Forum building at the private, Southern California-based college. The busy, three-story building houses classrooms, administrative and student government offices, a gift shop and other amenities.”

With the display is a flyer listing contact info for the campus rape crisis counselor, a sexual assault hotline, the Title IX office, as well as phone numbers for public safety, the dean of students, residential life, health services, psychological counseling services, and the Irvine and Orange police departments.

C.A.R.E.S coordinator Dani Smith said to The Fix that the Chapman poster was made about four years ago. She did not comment on what inspired it or offer other details about the display.

According to their website, C.A.R.E.S. is “a group of students who are committed to raising awareness regarding rape and sexual assault. The mission includes disseminating prevention information and stimulating discussion with the aim of impacting the rape mentality that pervades our culture.”
