A flyer announcing the renaming of the University of Maine Student Women's Association as The Feminist Collective. The Student Women's Association has had a decades long history of making UMaine a more inclusive, more feminist place. From inhabiting the original Women's Resource center, to hosting Take Back the Night every year, to our most recent success in reviving the Women's Resource Center. We are proud that SWA has been a beacon of intersectional feminism here at UMaine for many many years. This year we will be continuing the tradition of learning and growing from our past and adapting to each step towards equality and equity by changing our name to The Feminist Collective. As bell hooks has said, feminism is for everybody, and our new name is a means of opening up our group to all peoples of all genders, and making our group and our campus a more intersectional and more inclusive space for feminist activism. The Feminist Collective meets Mondays at 6 p.m. in the Walker Room!
