The Feminist Research Group, or FRG, is a graduate student initiated and run research group at the University of Windsor in Ontario, Canada. FRG was created to support, encourage, and validate feminist knowledge.
FRG provides a variety of opportunities to encourage and support feminist knowledge on campus and in the community.
The Goals of the Feminist Research Group:
To develop a feminist community that is welcoming and provides encouragement, validation and an opportunity to be challenged. This community should also present the opportunity to network.
To be involved in the production and sharing of feminist knowledge. This should be a multidisciplinary endeavour that is based on praxis – that is, the embodiment and mobilization of this knowledge in our everyday lives.
To promote the production and sharing of feminist knowledge, beyond ourselves and our group to the wider community
The FRG chair rotates on a monthly basis. Members volunteer to act as chair 2-3 months in advance. The acting chair schedules and facilitates meetings, takes minutes, and maintains communication throughout the month.
The FRG practices consensus building as a means of decision making.
