Yes! I'm a Feminist

Red Yes! I'm a Feminist banner

Our 8th annual "Yes! I'm a Feminist," a kick-ass party for feminists of all kinds, will take place virtually via the WGS website, blog, and Instagram page from January 14 through January 28, 2021. Our annual fundraiser event benefits the College of Charleston's Women's and Gender Studies program as well as the WGS Student Opportunities Fund and the Alison Piepmeier Scholarship.

“Yes! I’m a Feminist.” is celebrating eight years as an annual event organized by the WGS Community Advisory Board in support of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program at The College of Charleston. While this year has kept us at a distance, we have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to find a creative way to celebrate our “wins” with our most loyal and generous supporters and to invite our global community to the party.

This year, our annual fundraising event will be completely virtual. With COVID-19 as a deciding factor, we have instead poured our energy into creating a video (watch below) that encapsulates the culmination of our hard-fought past, acknowledges our present-day reality, and looks onward to a brighter, more feminist future. We are, if nothing more, celebrating the mere fact that we’ve survived one of the most arduous years in recent memory, while preparing for the vital work ahead.

 

 

With this video, we hope you see yourself in the imagery, hear yourself in the words and feel a sense of pride in what we have accomplished, together. We also hope you are moved to deepen your resolve and to give what you can to support an unprecedented academic program in a grand institution that is committed to challenging the status-quo, getting into good trouble and bending the arc toward a more just world - for all.


Today through Thursday, January 28 - CofC Day! -
We are campaigning for feminist futures and a more just world for all.

DONATE TODAY. Give Your "Yes!"
