Good afternoon! The Feminist Club and Latina Leadership Club have an event planned for Monday, March 9th, that we wanted to inform the staff about. Any young ladies who would like to participate will be released the last 5 minutes of 4th hour and will head to the North gym for a display of Female Empowerment and to also bring awareness to what is happening to the women of Mexico. The following is a message from students in the Feminist Club:
Today we recognize a day without women, inspired by the movement in Mexico that is happening as we speak. The Feminist and Latina Leadership Clubs want to honor and support these women in solidarity as they protest the national “femicide,” or killing of females, that has been occurring in Mexico. Girls from Olathe North are encouraged to meet in the North Gym at 11:24 to demonstrate the importance of women in society, and for us, the importance of girls at Olathe North. Mr. Herman has approved this event for your teachers to excuse you from the last 5 minutes of your classes. Please join us to hear about female empowerment, femicide, and Feminist and Latina Leadership Club presentations.
During the presentation there will be:
Let me know if you have any questions, thanks!
