What’s happening | Self defence classes | Rad Sex & Consent Week 2012!

Fight Like A Woman

(english: fight like a woman!)

We’ve had a great first half of semester one, and thanks to everyone who has been able to come along to WAC, stitch n bitch, Girlzone, Feminist Discussion Group, and FFFFILMS!. It’s been really busy and I hope everyone will enjoy a break (or some time to cram for exams and essays!)

So, some updates:

  • We have organised a wom*n-only self defence course starting Monday April 16. There will be four classes that cost an absolute bargain of $5 each, and run every Monday from 5:45-7:45. Click

    here for more information. Update: Classes now full, thanks everyone!

  • There’s a new computer in the wom*n’s room so it should be running a lot faster now – although there’s still the same old screen, but we’ll see what we can do about that!
  • We (the wom*n’s officers: myself and Amy, the queer dept officers: Luke & Katie, and a bunch of super awesome students who are just enthusiastic) are well into planning our big event for semester one in week 9: Rad Sex & Consent Week 2012! For those who weren’t around last year, this fantastic event is a week of talks, workshops, fun & performances centred around celebrating and learning about diverse, consensual, healthy and fulfilling sex and sexuality. Think of it as sex ed for grown ups that is wom*n positive, queer positive, body positive, and sex positive – since many of us received sex education that was at best unhelpful and at worst harmful… that’s if you had any sex ed at all! Check out www.radsexconsent.com for more info – we’ll be adding more details and resources as we confirm them. In the meantime, if you’d like to get involved – whether by contributing ideas, helping make a zine, running a workshop, or sticking up some posters, let us know!
  • There’s a new feature on the site called Spotlight, where we will post information about events, performances, and initiatives run by or for wom*n in Melbourne. If you have a tip for something to feature, let me know!

Well I think that’s it for now, so have a happy and safe break and see you all back at uni.

– Bel
