EMPOWER

What is EMPOWER? 

EMPOWER is the women’s studies student organization at Berry. Our organization exists to offer a place for students to feel comfortable addressing issues of discrimination whether based on gender, race, class, disability, or sexuality. Our goal is to empower our members and community to speak out against sexism and inequalities. We strive to achieve this goal through sponsoring events to raise awareness pertaining to issues such as sexual health, gendered violence, sexism in the media, and others. We also hold bi-weekly meetings where we discuss current gender issues in the news. EMPOWER welcomes ALL people, no matter what race, class, gender, political background, or sexual orientation. Come join us in being a part of the movement for equality!

EMPOWER meets every other Tuesday at 6:30pm in Krannert Underground!

This event, co-sponsored with the WNS 412 Seminar class and EMPOWER, is an expo open to all students that will display information and resources related to women's health and well-being. There will be representatives from campus and the community who will showcase "stations" with information on topics such as healthy body image, reproductive health/contraceptives, sexual health, nutrition, exercise health, counseling, self-defense, mental health, intimate partner violence, and sexual assault awareness. Students will be able to take resources/information from specific stations and ask questions of the representatives.

Come watch EMPOWER's annual rendition of Eve Ensler's monologues about celebrating women and their struggles. Each of the monologues deals with an aspect of the feminine experience, touching on matters such as sexloverapemenstruation, female genital mutilation, birth, the various common names for the vagina, or simply as a physical aspect of the body. A recurring theme throughout the piece is that the vagina is a tool of female empowerment and is the ultimate embodiment of individuality. Each monologue will be read by a student or faculty member.
