Spotlight on UC San Diego: Feminist Campus.Org Featured FMLA

Determined to establish a permanent feminist agenda on campus, FMLA activists worked to dispel current stereotypes about feminism and to transform the public debate on issues of importance to women's lives. The
group held a feminist Expo which featured information sessions, an organizational fair with over a dozen local reproductive rights and feminist organizations, and a "Faces of Feminism" wall of photos featuring
