Auburn Women's Organization and Free State Action are proud to announce the
Third Annual SOUTHERN GIRLS' CONVENTION (SGC 2001), on the weekend of
FRIDAY, JULY 20 - SUNDAY, JULY 22 (check your calendars!), at Auburn
University in Auburn, Alabama!
WHY A SOUTHERN GIRLS' CONVENTION?
Because we live in rural towns overrun with religious piety. Because we
live in big cities overrun with racial tension. Because we need to unite,
create a network, and become empowered. Because we need to fight back
against misogyny and violence against women. Because we reject the racist
and sexist Southern Belle archetype and any passive, second place gender
role thrust upon us. Because we are strong, intelligent, independent, and
active young women who seek change in our communities. Because we refuse
to be victims. Because we have an intrinsic desire to revolt.
Southern Girls' Convention will meet the challenge by bringing together
hundreds of student-age (and all other ages!) activists from across the
country for a weekend of discussion, action, and entertainment devoted to
building pro-woman community in the South.
AT SGC 2001, YOU CAN:
+ Attend your choice of information-packed caucuses and peer workshops
on women in the South, reproductive rights, movement-building, sexuality,
racism, body image, etc. ...
+ Share your skills and learn from other pro-woman activists on
consciousness-raising groups, women's self-defense, healthy living,
using the Internet, DIY and guerilla media, and more!
+ See shows with excellent grrrl bands and women performers! See free
feminist films, check out exhibits of local women's artwork, and enjoy
women's culture from around the South.
+ See life in the Deep South in "the Loveliest Village on the Plains,"
Auburn, Alabama and the surrounding area - Tuskeegee, Montgomery,
Birmingham, Atlanta, and Selma are all easy day trips.
+ Meet hundreds of fabulous feminists from across the country: advertise
your zine, browse tables upon tables of activist information, coordinate
new projects, spread publicity for your own convention, have amazing
discussions, make new contacts ...!
