International Women’s Day & Blog Against Sexism Day

Happy International Women’s Day! Today marks a celebration of women all over the world, but also an acknowledgement that much work remains to be done to achieve gender equality all over the globe.

Here on campus, TFA is kicking off our “This is What a Feminist Looks Like” campaign to ‘raise awareness’ (it sounds like we are a disease) about feminism—what it is, who we are, and what we want. The goal of feminism is quite simple:
Equality for all genders.
I’ll leave you to marinate on that for a while, but we want to make it clear that that our primary goal is achieving equal choice for women across the world, whether that be the choice to work, stay home, be healthy, speak freely, or otherwise.

In addition, you are all invited to our International Women’s Day Celebration, TONIGHT in Sophia Gordon from 5-7 pm. Grace Paley, Deborah Digges, TFA, VOX, the Jackson Jills, and John McDonald will all be there…plus, free food! TFA and other groups will also be tabling today in the campus center from noon to 2 with info, food, stickers and other fun stuff for International Women's Day.

The Tufts Daily's coverage of the "This is What a Feminist Looks Like" campaign can be found here.
