Feminism is a global matter with innumerable activists, and University of Wollongong student Jamie Reynolds is no exception. UOW’s Feminist Society (FEMSOC) provides weekly one-hour presentations surrounding feminist issues, raising awareness and support.
When asked about the reason behind her involvement, Jamie answered; “Coming into university I didn’t know much about feminism, but both my room-mates are feminists so I felt it would be a great thing to be involved in.”
After attending various presentations, Jamie highlights the importance of the issue to her. “I believe it’s still extremely relevant in todays society, and I love going there to learn more about it…it’s important to me.”
