A quick update on what the Wom*n’s collective has been up to in the last few weeks of semester.
Last week, we held Knightess, which is a wom*n’s performance night aimed at redressing the underrepresentation of wom*n in the performing arts.
It was held at Hermann’s bar and was a fantastic night of music performances, drama and poetry. It was widely attended and was a great way of getting wom*n’s voices out there as well as raising the profile of the women’s collective.
We also recently voted to put an asterisk in the place of the ‘e’ in women in order to make our collective more inclusive. There will be more information and explanation around this decision at a later date.
Being the end of the year we also voted on new wom*n’s officers, Congratulations to our new representatives who you will be hearing from soon.
What is noteworthy is that our collective had it’s first contested election in recent history, We believe this is a testament to the strength of Wom*n’s Collective and the passion of the wom*n within it.
Finally, some of us are in the final planning stages of Reclaim the Night which will be held this Saturday, 26th October. If you are available to come along, please do. Reclaim is an annual protest against violence against wom*n and has been organised by two fantastic Sydney Uni wom*n this year.
It will begin with a picnic from 3.30 at Prince Alfred Park, Central and feature fantastic performers and speakers. The march will begin at approximately 7pm and will be an autonomous wom*n’s march.
