Executive Committee Members
Feminists in Action elects an Executive Body every academic year that meets to nurture the well being of FIA. Although we each have our individual responsibilities to the group, we rotate facilitation responsibilities every week through a method called Popular Education. Popular Education is to
1) SEE the situation lived by the participants
2) ANALYSE this situation, analyzing their root causes
3) ACT to change this situation. Essentially, the learners are the subjects in the learning process, and not the object. The Educator and the learners are equal participants in the learning process.
Meet Our Exec Team!
President: Lindsay Falkenberg
I am a sophomore in the college double majoring in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and International Studies, with a focus in Latin America. I am a peer facilitator for Sexual Assault Peer Advocates and member of Aural Pleasure a capella. After acting in the Vagina Monologues last year, I am excited to work as an assistant producer for this year’s show and to continue my commitment to fostering inquiry and advocacy around gender issues as president of FIA.
Secretary: Arianna Robbins
I am a sophomore in the college pursuing a double major in International Studies and Economics. I am secretary of Feminists in Action, as well as a Volunteer Emory staff member and an active member of Emory Women's Ultimate Frisbee. I was inspired and humbled by the outstanding 2012 performance of the Vagina Monologues, and am excited to participate in VM production for the first time as Assistant Producer in 2013. FIA has allowed me to recommit myself to addressing and studying gender issues and inequalities in our society and right here in the Emory community.
Treasurer: Moyo Odunsi
Publicity Chair: Cara Ortiz
Community Outreach Chair: Priyanka Krishnamurthy
I am currently a sophomore at the College of Arts and Sciences. I am studying philosophy and economics and plan on attending law school to practice environmental law and sustainability. The equality between men and women has always been a priority in my life which is why Feminists in Action at Emory became the perfect outlet for my obsession. I hope that by being an active member in my community the disparity between men and women will close.
