Women's History Month

Hey everyone! Feminist Pride Day went splendidly and we had an awesome and fantastically fun meeting with pizza and some new faces! Here is a link to the tumblr page we created to show off what a feminist looks like, it was a huge success.
In other news, Happy Leap Day! Whoo! And because today is Leap Day, that means tomorrow is the first day of March, Women's History Month! I already posted a calendar for the month and it is full of awesome activities! Also at our meeting last week, we met up with a woman from the campus radio station and we did some audio then while some other members went on the radio for WAC! Here is a link of the audio:
So Big things happening overall, it's going to be a busy spring! :)

Spring Semester!

Hey everybody! First post of the new semester. If you missed it we had our first meeting of the spring semester last week. We talked about the big things coming up for WAC and discussed Women's History Month, Feminist Pride Day, and the Vagina Monologues which is our big project for next year!! Our meetings will continue to be Wednesday's at 6 for this semester so hopefully everyone can make it. --Also, happy belated Valentine's Day! I hope you had a lovely day filled with big romantic gestures like over-stuffed bears and surprise flowers! If you are like me and did not have those things, well, I hope it was a beautiful Tuesday!

End of Semester

Happy belated Thanksgiving everyone! I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday and didn't slip into a tryptophan induced coma. WAC had it's last official meeting of the semester last night and we talked about some of the exciting things coming up for the spring. In the meantime, Christmas break is quickly approaching! To end the semester on a fun note, WAC is hosting a movie night next Wednesday the 7th of December in place of our normal meeting. The movie will begin at 6 and we are watching Easy A. It is a extremely funny and witty movie and it should be a lot of fun. There will be snacks and soda so come and join us! Afterall, who can turn down free snacks. :) Happy Holidays and good luck on your finals!

Miss Representation

Hey everyone! It is a new semester and there are new and exciting things happening in WAC! Tonight CARE sponsored the showing of the documentary Miss Representation, a film that delves into how the media misrepresents women, undermines women in power and alters our entire world view. It was a remarkable experience. Words can't express the horror I felt at some of the scenes depicted in the film. This isn't even about feminism, this is about being a human being and realizing that there is something fundamentally wrong with the picture today's media paints. This film would make anyone think twice before stereotyping or underestimating women. I encourage you to visit their website (, view the film and see what you can do to make a difference.
