Women's Center

Feminist Action Alliance

Purpose and Belief

The purpose of the Feminist Action Alliance shall be to create a community that is open to intellectual discussion in order to support the growth and advancement of individuals. Our purpose includes the empowerment of people of all genders through the education of ourselves and our campus community in order to work toward equality and respect for women and other gender minorities.

We believe that a feminist is one who believes that every individual should have the same rights regardless of page, disability, ethnicity, gender expression, gender identity, marital status, national origin, race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, or veteran status. Social Justice for all!

Weekly Meetings

FAA meets Tuesdays from 7:00-8:00pm in the Women's Center Board Room upstairs in the Multicultural Center.

Hello! My name is Kaylee and I am the discussion facilitator for Feminist Action Alliance. I am an English Literature major with minors in creative writing and film. I consider myself a feminist and I'm very interested in how gender issues work in our political system as well as in the media we consume (movies, tv, books, music, etc.). I'm very excited to see where FAA goes this year!
