Feminism is not solely a benefit for women, but to all genders. Intersectionality is a core part of our society’s belief, we acknowledge the different forms of discrimination in addition to gender based discrimination such as race, age, class, socioeconomic status, physical or mental ability, sexual identity, religion, or ethnicity. Our goal is to forge trust and understanding between students of diverse backgrounds with similar ideologies. We are committed to ensuring that our society is a warm and welcoming environment to anyone who wishes to join.
