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.
