FMLA Campus Group Camps Out to Protest Inequality

The Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance at Iowa State University camped out on February 24 to raise awareness about worldwide inequalities.

Prior to the camp out, students participated in a discussion at the Margaret Sloss Women's Center. The focus on the discussion was getting other groups on campus talking about discrimination.

According to FMLA President Deb Sundquist, the sleep out was designed to draw attention to the fact that "People face inequalities in the forms of racism, sexism, homosexism and other 'isms' that are a part of our world."
