Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance (FMLA)
FMLA has its origins in the Women's Awareness Group, which began in the early 1970s. FMLA is a student organization funded by the Student Government Association and directed by student officers through the Kutztown University Women's Center.
The mission of the group is to create an awareness of issues important to women and men students while promoting the welfare of society as a whole. Primarily an activist group, the students focus on issues such as self-empowerment, gender equity, freedom of choice, domestic violence and sexual abuse.
This group sponsors the Vagina Monologues and the campus-wide "Take Back the Night Rally and March" each spring and assists in many Women's Center activities, including residence hall programs, Women's History Month and Take Our Daughters To Work Day. Fund-raising efforts supplement contributions to non-profit community organizations, campus programming and conference leadership development opportunities.
The Women's Action Group meets every Tuesday at 11 a.m. in the Women's Center, 3 Old Main. New members are always welcome.
