Creating fierce & fearless females (and males!)

i-love-feminism.jpgHey Seton Hill - the Feminist Collective "club" is going to start back up this year under the guidance of myself and Stephanie Wytovitch and we hope that if you are looking for something exciting to get involved in that you will join us!

What is the Feminist Collective?
     -> Glad you asked! Our mission is to educate and engage students in issues around equality, sexual and domestic violence and harassment and to raise money for organizations that help victims of sexual and domestic violence. This year we are raising money to benefit The Blackburn Center in Greensburg, PA.

What activities does the Feminist Collective do?
     -> You're asking such great questions! This year since we are just building up the club again, we hope to create a big presence on campus to get more people involved and to realize the issues and want to help the cause. We are hoping to bring the Vagina Monologues and Walk a Mile in Her Shoes to campus this year, as well as hold a Spring Lawn Party and host a Guerrilla Girls sighing on campus, as well as do some clever fundraisers through out the school year.

Do you have to be female to join?

     -> Of course not!!! One of my favorite quotes is "Not all feminists are unattractive, loud women screaming through the streets looking for a man to castrate." Which you can take a number of ways, one of which I think means sure, you can be a guy and be a feminist. That just means that you think people should be treated fairly...good for you.

Anyway, if you have any questions feel free to check out our Facebook group, email our club at feministcollective@setonhill.edu or come to our first meeting on
Tuesday, October 5th at 8:30 p.m. in Admin 401
