“Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.”
– Malala Yousafzai
Fem Fighters takes action in a variety of ways. The group hosts, and will host more workshops, discussions, and other various events which are and will be open to the students of Lund University. The purpose of these workshops are to foster a deeper understanding of the issues within gender and sustainability, and to help peers begin to see the connectivity of the two.
In addition, one goal of the group is to directly address policy makers, administrative figures, and the structure of the university itself, and learn how to work together to facilitate a better method to encourage gender awareness and equality, as well as sustainability, within the curriculum.
We have bi-weekly meetings from August to May for Active members, as well as events, ted talks, and fun movie nights which offer interested folks the ability to come and discuss a large variety of topics related to gender and sustainability, from media to medical.
