Hey all and welcome to semester 1 of 2016, as I write this, I am admiring the t-shirts that have just come in for the Women of Colour Collective, which we will be selling for a gold coin donation that will go towards the Women’s Shelter, Lou’s Place.
The t-shirts look amazing and the stickers are on their way. It has been a bit difficult to get the Women of Colour Collective off the ground and it has been a bit of a teething process, but we are finally moving and doing some great work.
The beginning of the semester has been quite busy, with the Women of Colour collective working collaboratively with the Welfare department to send a USYD contingent to the Health Care Cuts rally, held on the 20th of February 2016 at 1pm.
The Women of Colour Collective will be meeting fortnightly and meetings will be held on Mondays starting in week 2 of semester at 4-5pm in the Women’s room at Manning House.
My aim for this year is to see the Women of Colour collective stand on its own two feet and I look forward to a year of intersectional crusading and feminist ass-kicking.
