Yesterday, I (Chloe, CFC intern at St. Olaf) held an event called Why Do We Need Feminism? and asked students/community members to write why they need feminism on a piece of paper. I then snapped their photo with it. The photos will go up in our main advertising hallway November 18-24. Everyone gave permission for use of their photo, and over 50 people stopped by in one hour to write their bit. The table was jam-packed! So many students thought carefully for several minutes before deciding what to write. They said there was so much they could write, but it was difficult to find the most powerful words to express their experiences with sexism or gender inequality. Their participation was awesome! Big thanks to everyone at St. Olaf who helped out. Click on this link to see all the photos!
Although there were so many good ones, I'll post some here that represent the different themes people brought up:
After the event, nobody had written specifically about choice, so here's my photo:
