Vice President of Communications - Iota Iota Iota: Triota is the Women’s & Gender Studies Honor Society with over 50 chapters nationwide. This year we are making a push to sort of reactivate the chapter at WVU. It is important to us to have our presence on campus known and to create a space, whenever possible, for feminist thought and action to take place. We strive to encourage diversity, egalitarianism, and support in the academic environment for all students at our university. Below are some flyers that show examples of the kinds of events we have had so far this year. Beyond those, we were also involved in a variety of discussions and events during WVU’s Diversity Week, and representatives from our group attended the annual Women’s & Gender Studies potluck dinner where we mingled, communicated, and made connections with faculty members from throughout the university, as well as people from the community who continue to make contributions to our department.
Member of the Gender Equality Movement (GEM): GEM is the student group associated with the Women's & Gender Studies Department here at WVU. Membership is open to anyone who in interested in finding some space on campus where their ideas about women, feminism, and the world can be heard and accepted. The main goal of this group is to make a stand against gender oppression and in favor of equity, not just on campus but within our communities. GEM is instrumental in planning some of the largest events on campus related to the Women's & Gender Studies Department, such as the annual Take Back the Night rally, which has been happening on college campuses throughout the nation and the world for many years.
