The-I-Need-Feminism-Because...Campaign-Hits-Cambridge-University-062113

Recently, students at England’s Cambridge University took part in the “Who Needs Feminism” campaign, a public awareness campaign aimed at asking people why and how feminism is important to them. As a women’s studies major in the ’90s, I was continually frustrated by women in my classes who believed that feminism was no longer necessary, because women had achieved “equality” with men. So it’s cool to see in 20-frickin’-13 that feminism is still a vital topic on college campuses. The CUSU partnered with the ARU Feminist Society and asked more than 600 students why feminism is necessary to them. The results? Cambridge students are remarkably smart and savvy when it comes to understanding the intersections of feminism, racism, and classism. Take a second to look at some of the amazing responses from the Who Needs Feminism campaign after the jump and check out all 600 responses on the CUSU Women’s Campaign Facebook page.
