About The Organization

Demia Feminist and Social Justice Club

Demia actively works to better balance the power structure between men and women, and in turn- the men/women binary and non-binary people, which will improve gender relations in society and give all genders the strength & courage to work toward equality.
The group works to create, maintain, & actively promote a community supporting gender equality at Butler University via programming, events, and activism on campus and the larger Indianapolis community. Additionally, we strive to provide a source of education about health, safety, politics, & labor as they relate to multiple perspectives in society (i.e. we strive for intersectionality). We address and increase awareness of sexism and inequality on campus and develop logical critiques to hegemony through plans to improve campus inclusi
