I don’t get caught up in cult of personality often, but damn, Rihanna is just next level. This is pure fire.

This is so excellent. I love these words, Rihanna you’re amazing.

YES! LIPS loves you, no matter what is underneath your clothes, or even on them. Represent YOURSELF, however you can and want to. We want to hear you, whether its with your badass haircut, your amazing thoughts, your bangin’ outfit, or whatever you got. You got somethin, and we alllllll need to experience it. Nobody can beat you, bein you.

a lotta boys need to learn this lesson harder. listen to the man, dude.

This is how to be a male feminist - heck, this is how to be an ‘ally’ to any marginalised group - listen to the experiences of others and learn instead of talking over the top of us with your personal thoughts on issues which you will never face.

Anonymous asked: Hello! I am currently a junior in high school residing in PA, and I am very interested in majoring in gender and women's studies. I went to Appalachian's open house a few weeks back and I loved it!! I was wondering if you have any input on how this program is run, and what activities surrounding issues pertaining to feminism are found on campus. Thanks!! (:

Awesome! We love the parts of Appalachian that work toward a more inclusive and safe environment for all of its students. LIPS is honored to be a part of that journey forward, and with other organizations we improve each year.

LIPS focuses specifically on improving the lives of women and female-identified individuals on campus and in the larger community. We believe in giving these people a safe space to redefine what their femininity means to them (see more about us here). We do so through our weekly meetings and our bi-annual zine (see more on our zines here). However, LIPS is just one part of a large community that works to make campus a safer space for everyone.

Other spaces and organizations on campus are:

The Women’s Center: located in the Student Union, the Women’s Center seeks to create and promote opportunities for women on campus.
The LGBT Center: located in the Student Union, the LGBT center strives to be a resource and safer space for/to all LGBT and allied individuals.
The Multicultural Center: located in the Student Union, the Multicultural Center promotes a diverse campus while creating opportunities for minority students.
Black Student Association: the BSA seeks to create a community for all black students and advocate for a better, safer future for other black students.
Minority Men’s and Women’s Leadership Circle: these two clubs create an environment that engages minority students by giving them opportunities to become leaders. LIPS and MWLC co-sponsor a bi-annual Pay Equity Bakesale that seeks to raise awareness about the pay gap and job equity (see more about our events here).
Sexuality and Gender Alliance (SAGA): a club designed to be a space for all identities to express themselves safely to promote a more unified campus.
TransAction: a club for all those who identify under the trans umbrella and those who want to improve the lives of students who do.

In terms of the women’s and gender studies department, I personally have had some amazing classes with some amazing teachers. The department also pulls in some amazing speakers, such as Angela Davis in 2012 and Carol Adams in 2013.  |  IMAGE: feminist theorist and animal studies scholar, Carol Adams, and former treasurer Rachel Clay become BFFs while discussing Adams’ book Neither Man Nor Beast.  

That being said, no campus, university, or administration is perfect. App has its flaws and has room for improvement, like any other. That’s why we need more participation from our current student body and from rising students like yourself to seek out App!
