Feminist Fridays are both a community and an opportunity. The dual purpose of Feminist Friday is to create a community of scholars who believe in collaborative leadership by engaging in critical discourse and reflection. Furthermore, it is to provide an opportunity for transformative learning through discussion and counterstorytelling, refuting the dominant narrative often attributed to marginalized populations.
During Feminist Friday scholars facilitate discussions that often provoking dissonance as well as attend to the intersections of one’s identity and how they interact with structural systems of dominance and oppression. Scholars are not expected to be knowledge experts, but only care about the topic they’ve chosen and be willing to learn more about it!
Many students value Feminist Fridays for the supportive community where they are able to engage in and discuss the issues that are important to them. Others join for the leadership opportunities and the opportunity to facilitate topics that are high-impact in a comfortable environment.
