Over the Easter Break

3 Apr

Easter break huh? Feel like procrastinating? You could always contribute to Judy’s Punch… 

Thank you so much to everyone who came to the National Day of Action last week!  There were hundred of students from universities across Melbourne there, chanting “Bullshit! Come off it! Our education is not for profit!” & “No ifs! No buts! No education cuts!”

There will be another NDA closer to the election. Maintain the rage.

We were also really happy to see so many at the launch of our Women’s Mentoring Network last week! Frances Separovic, Head of Chemistry at UoM told us her fascinating life story, focusing on how many mentors she had had and how many were unexpected and how career progression is rarely linear. The Mentoring Network Groups have now been assigned. We’ll be having great speakers at our Networking Nights every month. If you didn;t hear back from us, please let us know.

Next week will see a return of regular weekly events:

WAC (Monday 1pm in Wom*n’s Room) This week we’ll start talking about Bluestockings Week & NOWSA (again)

Feminist Discussion Group (Wednesday at 2 in Graham Cornish A) is happening!

Ladies Who Lunch With Ladies (Thursday 1pm in the Wom*n’s Room)- lunch and chats for queer and questioning wom*n on campus

Until then, keep smashing the patriarchy and taking care of yourself,

Amy
