York University needs a feminist society. More than 100 students already recognise this and are part of the group. We need a place where we can discuss feminism as a political ideology and talk about feminism as a worldwide issue rather than just a campus one. We need a FemSoc because a Liberation and Welfare network is not supposed to have a political agenda. We need a FemSoc because Feminism needs to be recognised as a legitimate political movement, on campus and outside campus. We want a safe place where all genders can speak about the movement, and a place where we can invite speakers. When we have a large number of ratified societies with far less people interested than those who are interested in FemSoc, we wonder why YUSU is refusing to ratify us. Please sign this petition to enable Feminist discussion at York University.

      I am a UoY alumni. A society that has over 100 members and is happy to agree to the SU rules should be ratified. If this is duplication, and members needs are already being met why does it have over 100 members?

      There is no good reason why it shouldn't exist
