I founded the first women's organization on campus because there was a lack of an open forum for communication, discussion, and education about relevant issues concerning feminism, gender equality, and all forms of oppression through an intersectional lens. We held weekly meetings regarding sexual health, LGBTQ+ issues, women in politics, and more. We worked closely with the Women and Gender Studies department and student organizations to produce campaigns, marches and educational meetings.
Feminists Unite’s goals include being able to facilitate respectful, open, and honest conversations with members of the university community about the feminist issues they face in their lives. Over time we hope to gain a wide and diverse membership, allowing a wide array of views to be heard and learned from. We hope to create a reputation for being a space for free inquiry where anyone with an enthusiasm to learn would be able to come to a Feminists Unite meeting or event and learn.
