F.O.R.C.E. Newsletter - 2/2/09-2/8/09

- Week of Welcome
February 4 & 5 (Wednesday and Thursday)
11am-2pm at the Friendship Walk

F.O.R.C.E. will be tabling Wednesday and Thursday at the Student Organization Fair. The purpose is to reach out to CSULB students seeking involvement in campus groups, as well as to get the word out on what our group has done in the past and what we hope to do in the future. We will also sell our Sex Positive Zine and distribute other feminist literature.

We need volunteers to help table! If you are free either day any time during 11-2, email us at force4change@yahoo.com.

- Fem Talk: Virgin/Whore Chicana Feminist Dichotomy
Wednesday, February 4, 2009
7pm-8:30pm at ROYCE 130 at UCLA

Join the Bruin Feminists for Equality for a discussion on the Virgin/Whore dichotomy that exists within Chicana Feminism. They will be looking at the images of the Virgen de Guadalupe and Malintzin (aka Malinche). Through the discussion we can also make bridges to other female figures in history, as well as possible solutions to these stereotypes within history and in society.
