Week of Women!
"What is Feminism" Campaign is this week: For those of you who were able to make it to our meeting you will recall that this week we will be conducting a short and simple campaign called "What is Feminism" to send a positive message about our organization, our goals, and the feminist initiative as a whole. This will entail...
A "quilt" in the cooler: it is basically a space on the wall that will be filled with pieces of paper which have the collected definitions of feminism from people on our campus.
Monday - Friday: Tabling in the Quad during lunch collecting definitions of feminism from the student body for the "quilt"
FRIDAY at lunchtime = all female-artists DJ set in collaboration with KOXY!!!!Send your favorite all female (or at least female front-woman) songs as an attachment by Thursday afternoon. Empowered songs only.
If you would like to participate we still need volunteers for this upcoming week!!Email: firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for shifts of (12-1:30 MWF and 11:30-1:30 Tues and Thurs)
You will be provided with sheets of paper for their definitions, markers, a "questions to consider" sheet to help participants with their answer, a sign up sheet in case anyone is SO interested they want to join our group, and an instruction sheet...so it is really easy!! All you have to do is be there for your shift!
Women! also needs volunteer to help in the afternoon hanging up the responses.
Thank you so much for all who made the meeting last week! We cannot wait to see you all again this week at lunch. Come show your support and fill out your portion of "The Quilt" any time this week.
