Blue Stockings Week 2012

Hey everyone!

Blue Stockings Week kicks off today! From the 6th until the 17th of August, Blue Stocking Week is an annual chance to celebrate the unsung women in higher education and raise awareness about issues women still face in regards to education.

This Thursday (9th August), the UQ Women’s Collective is holding a bake sale on St Lucia Campus in the Chemistry Annexe from 9am. There, you’ll be able to buy (mostly) blue delicious bake goods, like cup cakes, muffins and chocolate swirls. You’ll also find information about Gender Studies at UQ, copies of the most recent issue of wom*news and Hecate, and stickers and flyers from NUS and the Collective to do with BSW that you can take for free.

Mark your attendance on the bake sale facebook event, and this thursday, wear your blue stockings with pride!

Below you can find a copy of our own Blue Stocking Week 2012 flyer that you’ll be able to pick up at the bake sale.

Have a great week, wom*n!
