==================

There was a great turn-out for Feminist Exploration Day at UNC-Charlotte on April 19, 2017, sponsored by UNC-C Women and Gender Studies Program. The event included a resource fair and breakout sessions. Charlotte NOW had been invited to inform students and faculty about the National Organization for Women. 

“So happy to see so many young people engaged in issues of equality and justice. Many males attended the event in support of challenges and issues that women face today.”
