Hey all!

 

I’m a very outspoken feminist, and when I saw all the things Muskingum was putting on this week, I about exploded with excitement. Although I have not/will not be able to attend all of the events, I’m still able to be involved or see at least a few things.

  • I missed Women’s Professional Stories, in which professors and other faculty spoke about their lives as professional women (obviously).
  • I did manage to nab a “This is what feminist looks like” t-shirt for ten bucks, proceeds from which go to Haven of Hope, a local women’s shelter and advocacy group.
  • Then, on Tuesday everyone was supposed to wear them and potential do a “I Need Feminism Because” type of thing, with photos taken.
  • Wednesday was a how to dress for your body type (which I also could not attend). All throughout the week a Mirror Project is going on – all public restrooms have the mirrors covered up with paper. The papers have statistics and inspiring phrases on them, which I thought was great. I wanted to look in the mirror – but who the heck cares? I am what I am.
  • The Clothesline Project also occurred. Basically, you could decorate a t-shirt in order to take a stance on abuse of women by writing personal stories, statistics, etc. They are then hung on the quad for people to view.
  • Tomorrow the chapel is hosting a brown bag lunch with different topics relating to women – my ASA women will be attending the Feminism & Spirituality topic, but there are also a couple more (mean girls syndrome, relationships, and mentorship). I wish I could attend all of them, but unfortunately I’m not Hermione Granger.  *sigh*

 

Have a good week everybody!

My "This is what a feminist looks like shirt". Even though the "a" got engulfed into my armpit. :P
