An Introduction to Femsoc
Interested in feminism? Or simply finding out more about what exactly that means?
The definition of feminism is ‘advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality’; we aim to work towards equality of the genders.
As one of the first UK universities to accept women, Royal Holloway has a rich feminist history which we try to keep alive through our society. We meet weekly for friendly discussion with likeminded people, usually followed by a social. In the second week of term we will be holding an open session to give a feeling for the society before you pay membership, so don’t believe the ‘man-hating’ stereotype, come and meet us for yourself!
We invite in a variety of speakers and hold charity and campaign events as well as a great mixture of socials. Our society also attend events in London through links with ULU, we have our own magazine ‘The Wilding’ so are always looking for contributions as well as new members! Absolutely anyone welcome, join our Facebook group for more information and our freshers week calendar listing our many exciting events!
