Check it out: one of our chartered campus groups, the Feminist Majority at the University of Chicago, is quoted in this Chicago Tribune article about a newly minted student organization on campus, “Men in Power.”
Major props to the Feminist Majority and other students on campus for speaking up about this! I have really enjoyed working with these Chicago feminists over the course of the last year and am totally inspired by their passion and responsiveness to issues on their own campus and community.
Also, check out some background on the situation – first, the founder of Men in Power’s article (“Men in power – True equality means groups that advocate for men as well as women.”) in the school newspaper, The Chicago Maroon, and another Maroon article (“Men’s advocacy group holds first meeting amid protest”) about their first meeting and students on campus responding.
What do you all think? Is there a need for groups like “Men in Power”? Why, or why not? How would you respond to such a group starting on your campuses?
Feel free to comment below, we want to hear from you!
