Default Like feminism? Dislike your dorm?

WoCo: A Feminist House has two openings for the spring semester, and we want you!

Our mission statement:
Woco: A Feminist House was founded in 1989 in conjunction with the Women’s and Gender Studies Program. We are a community of women and men dedicated to being a women-friendly and feminist-positive place on campus, appreciating the multiplicity of experiences including, but not limited to, such areas as gender, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, and class. The House is an environment committed to promoting awareness through active discussion and education, as well as by putting theories into practice. The House is a safe, open space that operates on the basis of mutual respect and personal growth, for house members and the Drew Community at large.

Things to note:
-We currently have TWO openings available in a gigantic double
-Applicants of any gender are welcome
-We are located in Eberhardt 23 and 24, between La Casa Latina and Earth House
-We have a kitchen, a cozy living space, a house reader and bookshelf, and a cuddle corner!!
-We meet once a week for discussion and program planning
-Every house member is responsible for attending house programs, contributing to campus-wides, and organizing one in-house program of their own each semester. Past programs have included Take Back the Night, PostSecret, Sex Week events, feminist spoken word performer Staceyann Chin, and GLBTQ activist Judy Shepard.
-We are a close-knit community of fun, activist-minded students, and we are so excited to have someone new join us! Feel free to stop by anytime to view the living space.


Please complete all questions below and return the application to Eberhardt 24B or via email to lwalton@drew.edu by 12:00pm on Sunday, February 13th. Please include an essay in which you discuss your reasons for wanting to live in the House and the contributions you would make to the house and its purposes. In addition, please include at least one new program idea that you would like to see implemented this semester, and your own personal definition of what feminism is. If you have any questions, please contact Lindsay Walton at lwalton@drew.edu.
