Center For Feminisms
The Center for Feminisms (CFF) strives to work towards an actively anti-sexist campus. The CFF prioritizes anti-sexist programming on campus, in accordance with our mission, and also provides programs that deal with other forms of oppression. The CFF strongly supports student-initiated programming. The CFF is a part of the department of community advocacy in the division of student affairs.
- To recognize that gender is a social construction and that social constructions are products of society, not fixed in individuals.
- That it is only possible to understand one social identity while acknowledging all intersecting social identities.
- To foster a critical awareness of the impact of all forms of oppression, including but not limited to ablism, ageism, classism, ethnocentrism, gender oppression, heterosexism, racism, and sexism and how they intersect with gender.
- To acknowledge that because sexism privileges masculinity over femininity, sexism impacts women and men differently.
- To recognize that male privilege is the problem, not the inclusion of men. Recognizing privilege as the problem and not individuals provides the opportunity for all individuals to work on the issue.
- To provide an accountable space and a safe space, in which the individuals who use the space strive to not reproduce oppression and individuals hold themselves responsible for not perpetuating oppression. This also recognizes that individuals with target identities may have agent identities, and the impact of internalized oppression. A safe space is one that strives to be free of oppression.
