  • The first “I am a Feminist” Poster Series was proudly hosted by the Women’s Studies Student Association. The poster series is an activist movement meant to combat the negative connotations associated with the word “feminist” and make it more familiar and relatable to audiences through visual evidence. Every school day for the month of November, posters of different UNCW students, faculty and staff went up on bulletin boards in a variety of buildings around campus. See slide show below:
