GCC Feminist Society Meeting in May

Do you enjoy good food paired with great discussions and prizes? If so, mark your calendars for May 23rd when the Feminist Society will meet to discuss topics like women in film and television, as well as reproductive justice. 

On March 23 the Feminist Society held a similar discussion and they plan to host five additional meetings this spring semester during which attendees can participate in giveaways. Those meetings are open to all students, and current club advisor Professor Michelle Stonis pointed out that “new attendees are always welcome.”

The Society was founded by a group of students with the guidance of Dr. Peggy Renner, a former professor of History at GCC who taught women’s history and founded GCC’s Women’s History Month celebration in the 1980s.

Currently the Society has five student leaders and a total of 12 attendees at each meeting. The club advisor is particularly proud of the most recent student leaders because they reinvigorated the Society after the pandemic. “They’re bringing fresh energy and ideas to the club, which struggled to keep afloat during the pandemic,” further explained Professor Stonis. 

Students who join the Feminist Society will be guided, empowered and prepared to stand up for equality and equal rights for every individual. In addition, the Society argues that it assists students in becoming stronger critical thinkers.
