Photo Gallery: “Is Feminism Still Necessary?”

As part of the College’s celebration of Women’s History Month in March, the Association of Lafayette Feminists hosted a photo display event called “Is Feminism Still Necessary?” Students, faculty, staff, and friends took photos of their reasons why feminism is important. The images were on display in Farinon College Center from March 18-22.

The goal of the month was to capture the spirit of International Women’s Day on March 8 by featuring events on and speakers from Africa, Russia, the Caribbean, and Asia and exploring Native American topics, spirituality, body image, feminism, sexual assault, and women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields. Some highlights were two talks by Russian journalist and Vladimir Putin biographer Masha Gessen and a staged reading of Eve Ensler’s The Good Body.
