The AS Gender & Sexuality Equity Center introduces FEMINIST FRIDAYS

CHICO, Calif.- The Associated Students Gender and Sexuality Equity Center (GSEC) is happy to announce that we are hosting Feminist Fridays in Trinity Commons from 10am-2pm starting October 10th and continuing through December 5th.  Feminist Fridays aim to empower, support, and create solidarity between activists and aspiring activists of all genders on Chico State’s campus. This semester we will be focusing on intimate partner violence, self-love, and the need for developing feminist identities. Our semester-long Feminist Friday campaign will give students, staff, faculty, and community members the opportunity to be proactive in their activism by participating in a different activity each week. All participants will receive a free button for each activity they complete. Those who choose to wear an activist-themed shirt will also be entered to win a feminist-themed basket. Winner will be selected on the last Feminist Friday of the semester, December 5th. Listed below are the themes for each week:
