feminism -1 : the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes; 2 : organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interests; 3 : anything that differentiates women from doormats; 4 : the radical idea that women are people and that all people are capable of treating one another fairly without regard to gender; 5 : movements and personal actions that eradicate misogyny, create love, spread peace, accept women as powerful, make movements, shake patriarchy, and generally make everyone feel awesome.
We held our 4th Annual This Is What A Feminist Cooks Like Potluck yesterday, September 23, at Emma's Garden Apartment! It was a wonderful feast of delicious food and conversation. Thank you to all the lovely feminists who stopped by!
We just had our first IC Feminists meeting and it was SWEET! Thanks to everyone who turned out, brought a friend and helped spread the word.
We started out with some introductions and information about upcoming events, such as:
The Student Organization Fair on Wednesday, September 3 from 10:00 am - 3 pm in Emerson Suites. The Student Organization Fair is hosted by the Center for Student Leadership and Involvement. Come check out the different groups we have on campus, and naturally, don't forget to stop by the IC Feminists
table and say hi!
The BOLD Red Tent, Birth Choices Ithaca, and The Birth Fair sponsored by BirthNet of the Finger Lakes. This event takes place on Saturday, September 6th from 11 am - 3pm at the Women's Community Building (100 West Seneca St.). Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in carpooling, need directions or just need some more info!
We continued on in the meeting with an ice breaker, where we all took off our shoes and shared some similarities and differences. At the end of the meeting we broke into groups and had some great discussions!
Join us next Tuesday at 8 pm in Friends 207! Come with ideas for activities and programs you'd like to see this semester!
IC Feminists is an independent group devoted to social, political, and economic equality for individuals of all sexes and genders. Our mission is to involve feminists on campus in issues of concern regarding gender equality, family politics, abortion, sexual rights, grrl power, women in office, breaking glass ceilings, redefinign 'feminist", sexual assault policies, birth control, media, and any other topics of interest to our members. IC Feminists strives to provide a high level of community connection and service with partner organizations downtown, and to provide workshops and speakers for Ithaca College students which increase their sense of ownership in a more equal society. We are committed to providing the space and power of many to make a difference, through local and global political action, volunteer work, personal inquiry, and peer education to ensure that feminist voices can be heard.
