In an attempt to inspire and educate, FemCon will cover a range of topics, including: self-care, financial responsibility, inclusivity, decolonising the curriculum, self-enterprise and student activism.
FemSoc’s secretary Chloe, says that the event will “celebrate cis-women, trans-women, and non-binary folx in support of international women’s day”.
Whilst the event is free, FemSoc are encouraging anyone who can to donate to the chosen charity, IDAS (Independent Domestic Abuse Services). IDAS is the largest specialist charity in Yorkshire supporting anyone experiencing or affected by domestic abuse or sexual violence. Their services include accommodation, community support, mentoring and access to a free, confidential out of hours’ helpline.
Chloe continues: “We’re really looking forward to this event, and hope to see as many of you there over the weekend as possible”.
