JMM Gender Equity Association Update

The JMM Gender Equity Association has had quite a busy February, and are looking forward to moving into March! During February, we focused on both intersectional and environmental feminism. We discussed how the fast fashion industry impacts women and gender non-conforming people, as well as how we can use our privilege to fight for and listen to other marginalized people. We had an incredibly successful clothing drive, where we collected a great deal of clothes to donate to local women’s shelters, and promote environmental feminism, and thinking more about our impact on the environment. Overall, February was an incredibly successful month! 

In March, we will be focusing on menstrual equity, and Human Rights Week! For menstrual equity month, we will be volunteering at women’s shelters around the Madison community, continuing our work on education and altering health curriculum, and finally discussing female access to reproductive healthcare. If you are interested in joining the Gender Equity Association, come to our meetings on Tuesdays and Thursdays in room 804 during lunch; or, reach out to the Co-Presidents Maggie Di Sanza (mgdisanza@madison.k12.wi.us), Melanie Golden (megolden@madison.k12.wi.us), or the club email (jmmgenderequity@gmail.com). We can’t wait to see you at all of our future events!
