Emily, Spring 2007

EmilyEmily is currently a junior at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas double majoring in Feminist Studies and Political Science. Recapturing her prior experience in recreational web design she joined the web development team in January as an intern where she helps to maintain and create new site content and advocacy campaigns for FMF. Emily's areas of interests include transnational feminism, analysis of race and gender in media, feminism and masculinity, and the possibilities for feminist activism online.

Why did you decide to intern at FMF?
I decided to intern with the Feminist Majority Foundation, because I felt that the organization was forward thinking about current feminist rhetoric. I also felt that it would be a good place to sharpen my design skills and to learn about the innerworkings of feminist non-profit organizations.

What does feminism mean to you?
To me feminism represents the willingness to recognize the impact and interconnectedness of gender, race, nationality, class, sexuality and religion in any given situation. Feminism pushes for critical thinking about what factors encourage and deter economic and social equality. In my life, feminism has been a forum and a philosophy that connects me to other individuals demanding change.

What are you working on now?
Currently I am working with the web team to maintain and create site content for FMF's many domains. I am also exploring new online networking possibilities for FMF that would increase our audience and provide a more accessible support base for feminists' online.
