Why Do You Need Feminism?

Tuesday the 13th through Thursday the 15th, SPEAK is putting on a “Who Needs Feminism?” campaign in the Werner University Center.

What does that mean?

They’ll be asking you to come by and write on a whiteboard why YOU need feminism, and then pose with a photo of your reason. Started at Duke University, this campaign is a way to spread awareness of the importance of feminism and break down negative thoughts that surround the word “feminist”.

From 11am-2pm, SPEAK members will be there to take your picture, so participate! Men and women alike have millions of reasons to need and advocate for feminism; make those reasons heard.

Still not convinced?

Equal rights don’t come when we sit around and ignore the problems: make them clear, and then find a way to fix them.
