FEM is excited to announce a collaboration with Campus Events Commission, UCLA Radio, Cultural Affairs Commission, and the Student Committee for the Arts at UCLA on “See, Recognize, Hear: Female Empowerment Week.”
“Feminism advocates equality and empowerment of all genders, and by extension supports the many different identities and backgrounds that people have.”
Last week, the Center for the Art of Performance (CAP) at UCLA presented a conversation with Pussy Riot members Maria Alyokhina and Ksenia Zhivago in Royce Hall, moderated by KCRW’s Edward Goldman.
“It’s always great to awaken from being ignorant, but at the same time it’s kind of that weight that comes with knowledge.”
“Feminism to me is the belief in providing an inclusive and intersectional space for all identities.”
Three women stood blindfolded in front of Royce Hall on Tuesday afternoon, February 2nd, with their mouths taped and their arms adorned with hearts. There, at the center of their art protest, stood a poster with the words, “If you or someone you know has been affected by sexual assault, please draw a heart on my arm.”
“Women shouldn’t have to take a breath before they say what they want.”
