Bits and pieces from Semester 1…

  • Meeting times for Semester 1 are Mondays at 9am and Tuesdays at 12pm. The next meeting is scheduled for Monday March 30th at 9am, then the next week is mid-semester break. We’ll resume meetings the week after, on Tuesday April 7th at 12pm.
  • Voting is now open for the UQWC 2015 Returning Officer. Vote here!
  • We’re planning a feminist film festival to run in the second half of Semester 1! This will involve some nights just for collective members, and some for the general public to attend as well. Check out the Facebook page – we’ll announce details there!
  • The Women’s Room is set to move at the end of Semester 1. Details are being finalised and will be shared with the Women’s Collective as they become known.
  • March 31st is the fiftieth anniversary of an infamous moment in Queensland feminist history. In 1965, Brisbane women Merle Thornton and Rosalie Bogner chained themselves to the bar at The Regatta hotel to protest the laws at the time which prevented women from drinking in public bars, sending shockwaves through the Brisbane community with their gutsy actions. Keep an eye out for a feature article on this topic by Amy Jelacic, UQU Vice-President!
