This past Tuesday I held the first ever National Organization for Women Club meeting at our school. It was amazing. There was a really good turnout at the meeting and a lot of other people had told me prior to the meeting that they want to be in the club but they had to stay after for teachers. It was amazing to get to see so many like minded people get together to discuss important issues in women's rights. We discussed what we want to do next school year and the goals we had. We also discussed what feminism is and what it means to us. I've never been so proud of a group of people as I was in that moment as I looked out at all the eager faces that came to the meeting. A lot of people (even some that I didn't expect) took applications for office positions. I can't wait to work with this group of people next year and work to spread feminist ideals and incite change.
