FemCom

What do we do?

FemCom is the Feminist Committee at AUC which provides a safe space to all students of AUC to come and discuss various issues pertaining to gender, sexuality, race and other forms of ‘Othering’. These issues manifest themselves in various forms, both within and outside of AUC; for instance, there are almost no women represented on the walls of AUC, very limited discussion in the classrooms concerning gender-related issues, cases where individuals have felt discriminated against, and absence of any gender-neutral bathrooms within AUC etc. We do not wish to confront these issues by personally naming and shaming individuals, but rather by addressing them institutionally and providing a platform where these and every other related issue can be discussed and students can engage and interact in order to understand the nature of these problems better. We strive to address institutional and personal forms of discrimination at AUC in a structured and organized setting, and create an inclusive environment for all.

Feminist Fridays – Every Friday during the lunch break, we get together on the couches of the first floor at AUC and discuss a new topic every week. In these discussions, we cover a broad range of topics such as ecofeminism, body image and self-esteem and their relationship with gender, consent and any other idea that AUC students might have!

Guest lectures – We host bi-weekly lectures by AUC faculty and also by speakers from organizations in and around Amsterdam, which help us in connecting with the city and the surrounding life more.

Women*’s week: Every year, we will be hosting the Women’s week, which will mark an event-packed line of days where the AUC student body can reflect on issues surrounding the broad theme of gender and share personal stories, experiences, artistic work, and love and empathy.

an intense celebration/ understanding issues concerning gender, race and sexuality globally by doing multiple things

Documentary screenings: In addition to the above, we also do documentary screenings in collaboration with SCREEN on a bi-weekly basis.

Adding further to all of the above, we hold excursions, reading groups, artistic collaborations all through the year. And what else? We talk! But we also love to listen. So if you have any suggestions/ ideas for any of the activities above or anything else that strikes your fancy, feel free to send us an email and we would be happy to sit down and discuss it with you. You can reach us at femcom@aucsa.nl or walk up to one of us personally.
