Feminists for Change

Grassroots Organization

Girl Power

Our Social Movement

Feminists For Change (F4C): A Community Youth Collaborative is an organization that works towards the equality of all genders. We welcome all youth who have a passion for fighting discrimination, sexism, and ecological destruction. Current members come from all secondary grades and represent multiple races and gender identities. Our main focus is empowering women, gender minorities, identity development, and the environment through providing resources and information regarding issues such as period poverty, sexual assault, domestic violence, and environmental feminism. As a club, it is our greatest hope that we can help make the Lincoln community a more safe and equitable place for all people.

Period Poverty

Increasing Access to Resources

According to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, period poverty can be defined as the “inadequate access to menstrual hygiene tools and education, including but not limited to sanitary products, washing facilities and waste management.” While this term appears to be relatively new, this struggle has been prevalent for ages. Recently, the issues caused by this public health epidemic are continuously rampant in every corner of the world, even within Lincoln High School. In an attempt to combat this inequity, we have provided baskets with a variety of menstrual products in classrooms and a number of bathrooms throughout the school. While this is not the solution to an elaborate, systemic issue, it has still worked towards supporting students who may not have access to the proper menstrual products that they truly need.

Engage Yourself

In Feminists for Change, we encourage all members of the Lincoln community to fight gender inequality and welcome any students who have a special passion for this movement. Below you can find some ways to get involved with our organization.

Donate

Feminists for Change greatly appreciates any and all donations given to us, but one of our most pressing needs is menstrual hygiene products to provide students in our building's bathrooms.
