Elisabeth Ziemba and Alyssa Martin, two UNE students minoring in women's and gender studies, were interviewed on TV news stories about the "Take Back the Night" rally in Portland on April 23, 2010. The theme of this year's march was take back the media, saying if every form of media stopped portraying women in a negative way the country and Maine would be one step closer to letting people know it's okay to talk about sexual assault. Ziemba, an English major, was interviewed on WGME 13 and Martin, a psychology major, on WMTW 8. The two participated in the rally as part of their work for Lori Power's Introduction to Women's Studies class.
