Feminist Action is about bringing an activist spirit back to our campus. We're interested in anti-oppression politics and doing rather than just saying.
While our activism is based on a radical, anti-racist, queer, grassroots lens, we do recognize the multiple interpretations of feminism and celebrate and support this diversity.
We also recognize that the history of the feminist movement in North America has been one that has excluded the voices and opinions of marginalized women. Thus we hope that our grassroots approach will allow us to dismantle structures of power from the bottom up, while being as fluid as possible.
Our aim is to work outside of societal systems in order to question what we consider ‘normal.’ It is through this activism that we hope to blur traditional identity categories and structures of power in our fight for equity.
All are welcome: students, non-students, those in the Gender and Women’s Studies and Sexuality Studies programs, and anyone with a natural interest or inclination towards feminism.
We are a club on campus dedicated to promoting intersectional feminism!
We will have:
- General club meetings for group discussion
- Joint club meetings with other clubs to build intersectionality and community (If you're a club on campus and want to collaborate, let us know!!)
- Film screenings
- Volunteer opportunities
- Book readings
- Holiday potlucks!!

Volunteering with the Feminist Action Club is a great way to:

- Challenge and empower ourselves
- Find and build personal support systems
- Organize with other working groups to resist the systems of domination in our lives.
This opportunity is a great way to make an impact at York and shape the work of an important campus organization.
