It is located in Xenia and they need all shifts and the pay is not bad at all, much better than anything you'd get on campus!

Summer housing (x-posted) Mar. 7th, 2006 @ 01:14 pm
I was wondering if any ladies were looking for summer housing this year. If so, I am looking to sublet my lease in University Park for the summer. Any interested parties, please email me at mcgraw.5@wright.edu. THANKS! :)

Possible venture for next school year? Feb. 24th, 2006 @ 09:22 am
So an email was receivied from Magdalen Hsu-Li stating she was looking for colleges or organizations that wanted her to come speak. There is a ton of info about her on her page so I suggest you go there for more specifics. But she is a muscician, speaker, GBLT activist, and most important to us a feminist. I don't know too much about her but I like what I've read so far. Let me know wht you guys think of her. Not to say we should try to pursue this, I just think inviting a speaker that crosses different plains like race and feminism would be a good PR move for us as well as maybe get more people interested in FMLA. This is the link to her page, read over it and let me know your thoughts! Also do you know of any other artisits or performers or speakers that would could bring to WSU?


Here is the top portion of the email she sent...it was longer b/c it included all her tour dates and stops.

Hi, my name is Magdalen Hsu-Li and I am a bi, feminist, asian-american
music artist and speaker seeking college or conference organizations
that would be interested in having me come to perform or speak in 2006-2007.
My musical performance, lecture, and workshop programs bring
communities together, raise awareness on campuses, and inform about
diversity & multicultural topics. My programs can provide general
entertainment or focus specifically on Asian Pacific Islander, LGBT, &
Women's topics. Events I've performed or keynoted for include: Campus
Activities Board music, entertainment, or coffeehouse type of events,
Orientation Week, Women's & Asian History Month, Coming Out Week, Day of
Silence, Aids Awareness Week, and various conferences & symposiums.
Could you connect me to the people (connected to funding) who produce
events such as these at your school? I'd like to submit a press kit & CD
for their consideration. My website www.magdalenhsuli.com has
additional information about my programs, my current tour schedule, and
sound clips of my music. Feel free to forward my letter to the right
people or send me their contact information. Thank you for your time and
assistance. I do hope to hear from you soon.

Bright Blessings,

» EC Demo

Jan Katsuyama of Dayton’s 2News may be there to cover the demonstration.

» Introduction
Hi, my name is Molly. I am a Junior Communication major, Women's Studies/French minor. I am a type-A to a tee and do way too many things (which is why I never joined FMLA), however, next year I would like to officially become a member because I plan on taking a much lighter load.

I became interested in feminism when I was eighteen. In my freshman fall quarter PLS 200 class, the teacher asked the question, "How many of you consider yourselves feminists?" No one raised their hand. I sat in my seat wondering if I was a feminist or not. I definately wasn't a radical...and sadly, no one raised their hands because thats what so many ignorant people equate feminism with. I started researching feminism over the next few months and educated myself about the waves and types of feminism. Finally, I decided to minor in Women's Studies to learn more.

Since then...I've encountered some interesting situations when people find out I'm a feminist and a women's studies minor. Some people tell me I don't "look like a feminist". I think thats hilarous. I didn't know that feminism had a certain "look". Some people have called me a man hater... Some roll their eyes at me and say, "You're one of those...." So, I take my opportunities to try to correct those who are un-educated.

I consider myself a liberal/global feminist. My boyfriend also considers himself a feminist (Some can argue that a man cannot be a feminist simply because he is a man, but I disagree).

I am excited to be a part of this Live Journal group. If anyone has questions, let me know!
» Freedom Winter '06
In 1964, thousands of students from across the country traveled to Mississippi and other Southern states to register and mobilize African American voters in unprecedented numbers. It was the famous 1964 Freedom Summer of the Civil Rights Movement that focused the nation's attention on the injustices of racial bigotry and hatred.

Now with the threat to turn back the clock on Title IX, Access to Abortion, Birth Control, Affirmative Action, the Civil Rights Acts, Voting Rights, and other gains for women and people of color, it is time to once again mobilize a massive student campaign--this time to save women's rights and civil rights.

On January 9, 2006, Judge Samuel Alito's Supreme Court confirmation hearings to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor begin. Judge Alito has been very clear in his writings that he does not support “racial and ethnic quotas” which is code language for being against affirmative action and he believes that the constitution does not protect a right to abortion and he opposes other Court decisions such as “one person, one vote” reappointment ruling. Make no mistake; Justice O'Connor has been the fifth vote to
preserve affirmative action and the right to abortion. The appointment of any right wing extremist, like Judge Alito, to her seat will shift the balance of the Court away from women's rights and civil rights.

The Feminist Majority Foundation is recruiting volunteers to come to Washington DC and join Freedom Winter '06 from Tuesday January 3, 2006 to Friday January 20, 2006 or anytime in between. They will help arrange local housing; they just need activists dedicated to leading the fight to Save Women's Rights and Civil Rights. Commit a week or more of your winter vacation to call activists, visit Senators' offices, plan educational events, and raise public awareness.

Be a part of history and join the Freedom Activists from around the country.

» Interesting quote....
In light of the Walmart movie and other factors in our current government, I thought I would share this...

"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power." -- Benito Mussolini
