Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance
History of FMLA
The Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance (FMLA) works with Kutztown University's Women's Center, organizing programs and other social events.
FMLA has its origins in the Women's Awareness Group, which began in the early 1970s. FMLA is a student organization funded by the Student Government Association and directed by student officers through the Women's Center.
The mission of FMLA is to create an awareness of issues important to both female and male students while promoting the welfare of society as a whole. Primarily an activist group, FMLA focuses on issues such as self-empowerment, gender equity, freedom of choice, domestic violence, and sexual abuse.
FMLA sponsors The Vagina Monologues and Take Back the Night events in the spring and collaborates on other campus events, including residence hall programming, Women's History Month, and Welcome Week. Fundraising efforts supplement contributions to non-profit community organizations, campus programming, and conference leadership development opportunities. New members are always welcome.

FMLA meets at 11am on Tuesdays in Boxwood House.
The Women's Center offers many discussion groups, as well as opportunities for students to lead their own groups. If you are interested in forming a group with a staff member, please contact Brit Barlup.
Come have some fun with FMLA and the Women's Center staff on Feminist Fridays! Join us for creative activities, fun discussions, and feminist films.
The first Feminist Friday will be held on September 17th from 1:30-2:30pm in Boxwood House. Come have fun!
