The Feminist Collective should exist to provide feminist activities and initiatives on campus with resources, a centralized space for discussions and organization, and support. Feminist Collective must engage the Beloit College Campus Community, as well as the community of the City of Beloit whenever possible. It works in the interest of fighting forces of oppression (including but not limited to: sexism, homophobia, transphobia, racism, classism, all manifestations of the patriarchy, ableism) as they intersect with and pertain to feminism and countersexism. The Feminist Collective supports freedom of expression and thought, and does not tolerate threats, violence, or hate speech. The house members (executive board) of the Feminist Collective will individually and collectively work to establish and promote feminist causes, advocacy, education, and activities in the pursuit of the aforementioned goals.
Membership is open to all Beloit College Students paying a Student Activities fee, regardless of gender, sex, race, color, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, religion, or previous academic experience. House members are chosen according to the Feminist Collective Housing Policy, and serve as permanent organizers of the Collective.
Members of the Feminist Collective are responsible for planning and facilitating weekly meetings, organizing club activities and planning an annual week or so of feminism-related events. House members will actively participate in all club activities and decisions and responsibly perform their duties, save for extenuating circumstances, in which case members are expected to give appropriate notice of absence and are still expected to see that tasks are completed. House members will also work to ensure that all house and club members feel safe living and/or spending time in the house and will respect all house rules decided upon. As the nature of the collective is one of shared responsibility, members are expected to take initiative and assume duties as necessary.
