Event a chance to meet and greet members of the Feminist Research Group

Involvement in the Feminist Research Group is an amazing opportunity to meet new people, discuss feminist issues, be exposed to new ideas, and develop professionally, says Mia Sisic.

The group brings together graduate students committed to feminist and women-centered works and research.

“We seek to develop and maintain a feminist community that welcomes, encourages, validates and challenges its members in an environment that promotes personal and professional networking,” says Sisic, a master’s student in psychology.
