The Gender Studies Student Organization is a group for students who are interested in gender and feminist politics. We strive to be inclusive and open our doors to anyone who shares these interests, regardless of their major. We organize panel discussions, workshops and other events that examine contemporary social issues through a gender-conscious lens. This semester, we are collaborating with a variety of student groups, including the Divest UMaine movement and the Student Sociology Association. Our first event will be a panel discussion entitled "When Students Act, Administration Listens: a Brief History of Student Activism at USM." It will be on October 23rd at 7p.m. in the Talbot Lecture Hall. In addition to this, we will be co-sponsoring the USM Royal Majesty Drag Show. If you are interested in being part of this group, please contact Paige Barker via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our meetings are Tuesdays from 12 to 1 in the Women and Gender Studies House.
