Leadership Alliances Gear Up for a New Semester of Feminist Activism

Last month, members of the UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance attended an awards ceremony and met with the directors of and faculty in the Gender Studies Department and the Center for Feminist Research. FMLA President Maryanna Abdo was later interviewed by USC's campus television station on the events of 9/11 and the need for humanitarian aid for women and girls of Afghanistan. Abdo also used the interview as an opportunity to publicize the group's upcoming Prescribe Choice actions.
The NORTHEASTERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance recently garnered press for their critical role in establishing the Women's Studies Department at NORTHEASTERN ILLINOIS and for their activism during Women's Health week last September. The paper lauded the group's work, stating that "the recent activities of FMLA... have played an important role in bringing about key changes and important new services on campus."
