Why UBC Needs Feminism
If you've seen some of the "I Need Feminism Because..." photo campaigns before, you probably know what's coming. If not, here's a quick run down. We'll be outside Koerner Plaza on Saturday and Sunday (March 2nd and 3rd) from noon to 4 PM with a camera and a whiteboard. If you can't make it on these dates but still want to be included in the campaign, message me and we'll work out a time for us to photograph you.
Students, staff, faculty, everyone: we want to hear why YOU need feminism. Come out, speak up, and tell the world that UBC is ready for change! Visit our facebook event @ facebook.com/events/213021172170138
