Vote for Vaginas!

Tomorrow, Thursday October 30th

Lunch Hour: 12:05-1:10pm
Textor 101

Welcome again! Due to sick panelists and broken pizza ovens, Vote for Vaginas was canceled last week. Come this week -- same time, same place -- for a professor- and student-facilitated discussion about engendered political issues in the upcoming election. Everyone is welcome this Thursday, October 30, in Textor 101 at 12:05 p.m. for the chance to eat pizza, listen to professors' and students' perspectives on the candidates' policies, and provide your own input.


The conversation will feature five politically opinionated professors who will answer questions proposed by IC Feminists.

Discussion will revolve around women's issues, student issues and economic issues. FREE pizza will be provided, or bring your own lunch.

Sit in for a few minutes or stay the whole lunch period. Anyone and everyone is welcome! More questions? E-mail IC Feminists at icfeminists@gmail.com.

Let's talk politics!

Hello Feminists,

I hope everyone is cozy in their apartments/rooms/houses/lounges watching the Presidential Debates!

Tonight we talked about the Presidential candidates and their stances on women's issues.

Here are a couple of the videos we watched:

We didn't get a chance to watch this one, but it's worth checking out:

Lindsey passed along this website she heard about in one of her classes, it's supposed to be unbiased. Give it a look!

The Vote 4 Vaginas working group is meeting tomorrow at 5:30 at Joy's house, email icfeminists@gmail.com for more information.

Don't forget to submit your nominations for Feminist of the Month - including a blurb about why you are nominating this person. Send us an email with the nomination or bring it with you to our next meeting!

Enjoy the debates!

Girls Fight Back!

Hello Feminists!

On September 25th, IC Feminists hosted Erin Weed from Girls Fight Back! Thank you to everyone who came to the event! It was a fun, informative and empowering program on women's personal safety and self-defense. 

Erin shows us the vulnerable spots on SGA President Cornell Woodson

For those of you who missed the program, check out the "Bad Ass Ballet," - an easy to follow video that will come in handy if you are ever put into a situation where you need to defend yourself. 

Stop by our meeting tonight at 8:00 in Friends 207...we'll be discussing politics and our Vote for Vaginas program - it's sure to be a good time! See you there!
