Feminist Majority Feminist Campus May eZine

min
Feminist Campus eZine
CONGRATULATIONS ON ANOTHER FABULOUS FEMINIST SEMESTER
What an amazing semester it has been. Students across the nation have fought for lower birth control prices, exposed fake clinics in their communities, advocated for women around the globe, defended their local comprehensive women's health clinics, and so much more! Thank you for your hard work, passion, and dedication - YOU are the heart of the feminist movement.
If you are graduating this semester, sign up for our alumni network and stay connected with the Feminist Majority Foundation.
For those of you who will be around next semester - it is never too early to start planning next year's actions and events. The campus organizers are available all summer, so stay in touch! If your group is undergoing a change in leadership, let us know so we can keep you in the loop.
We are using this final eZine of the school year to honor a few of the many groups and individuals who have done extraordinary work this semester. Presenting the First Annual FMF FEMMIES! Congratulations to the winners and to all of you for being such amazing campus activists.

capitolMany people may not have ever heard of the University of Montevallo in Alabama, and if they did, they would easily assume that this university in a small southern town is far from showing its hospitality to its friendly progressive feminists. But in the depths of southern conservatism lies the mighty force of feminist power. And in University of Montevallo's case, the student-led, Montevallo's Feminist Majority is alive and well, ready to stomp out patriarchy in every corner of the campus community. READ MORE...

Christy Koester is busy. Really busy. Like many student leaders, Christy manages to juggle projects like a magician -- balancing classes, work, student activities and motherhood every day.
When the second leader for Making Waves stepped down last Fall to focus on class and work, an unlikely leader arose. Since becoming President last Spring, Christy has worked tirelessly to give a face and voice (and to find more voices) for feminist activism in a challenging campus environment. READ MORE...
