Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance Sponsors Feminist Coming Out Day

Tuesday March 8th from 7-8 in the Women’s Rresource Center, 3rd floor of the SCC.
What does it mean to be a feminist?
FEMINISM is the logical response to sexism; it exists because sexism exists. FEMINISM is “the radical notion that women are people.”-National Organization for Women’s website, http://www.now.org/history/debate.html
We’re feminists. We’re proud of it. And we’re coming out of the closet to show it.
As part of a national effort to encourage people to embrace their feminist roots we are throwing a feminist coming out day celebration and you’re all invited.
More info on the national campaign: http://feministcomingoutday.com/
Please look around campus for our fliers, and share any feminist quotes or definitions you have!
