NWU GAP students share Advocate for Diversity award

Gender Studies students Abby and Riley ended a banner year as the GAP coordinators shared the Student Advocate for Diversity award, given by the Action Council on Diversity and Inclusion administered by T.J. McDowell. We will miss them next year, but fully expect that the new coordinators will carry on their spirit of international awareness, collaboration and inclusiveness.

Ecofeminist exchange – knowledge, clothing

GAP coordinators created and facilitated an Ecofeminist exchange of knowledge and clothing, educating students on connections between domination of the environment and domination of women, providing treats by women-owned Goldenrod Pastries, and offering used clothing for $3 donations to Fresh Start Home. Impressive work, Gender Advocacy Place!

Abla Hasan, Arpita Ghatak, Dave Gottschalk to present “Perspectives on Feminism” TH 7 pm Olin A

Gender Advocacy Place hosts its week of feminism with tonight’s “How to be a Feminist Activist” workshop and Thursday night’s panel on feminisms.

One of our speakers, Arabic language professor Abla Hasan, was interviewed in the Lincoln Journal Star for her reaction to Governor Ricketts’ position on Syrian refugees. Other speakers hail from as close as Omaha and as far as Bengal, India. Thursday promises a fascinating conversation.

#NWU GAP in action: filming #It’sOnUs to raise awareness of sexual assault

The Gender Advocacy Place has been busy. Today they held a highly successful bake sale to draw attention to the wage gap. Cupcakes cost $1 for men and .78 for women (free of charge to those outside the gender binary).

This afternoon friends of GAP filmed segments stating why “It’s On Us” to stop sexual assault. TJ said,”It’s On Us to help a victim report sexual assault if he or she wants to.”
