(en) Canada, Quebec, The nothingness feminist MAGE-UQAC (fr) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 18 Sep 2012 06:19:59 +0300

The Mage-UQAC as the FEUQ, the hole is gaping downright giant: feminism does not exist. None of these bodies has a shape, an embryo, a something as small as it may be akin to feminism. Of course, the FEUQ has developed several publications, and by this point, but under "Folder" among the Copyright and the Quebec Public Finance no record of women's demands. However, a student union, it is abérant see unacceptable to trust the realities of almost half of its members. ---- Around this empty place some key elements that belie not the bad liver and inaction Mage-UQAC against women. ---- Under-representation of women. From the outset, it seems important to remember that the Executive Committee (2012-2013) of Mage-UQAC is composed of one woman and seven men. You may say that this unique woman president, but the will of feminism is it not equal?

Have greater power as a woman does not restored fairness, and
surrounded by men does not promote fair representation of each. In addition, he
seems important here to question the under-representation of women in
Mage-UQAC. How to explain it? What to do to encourage the involvement of
women on the executive committee? Many issues here and it seems
imperative not trivializing anything.

The Mage-UQAC expressed in male

If we search from top to bottom the former site of mage-UQAC, one can find
codes of ethics and bylaws Mage. Within these documents and
press releases, we can rejoice as the cowardice to feminize
texts. Quickly, we speak of "students" and never students. Would we
invisible? Or a simple "e" is too difficult for them to wear? We
allourdissons text, admit it! Just know that women exist and
that feminize texts and discourse has never killed anyone.

Student struggle

As has been pointed out in the introduction, as well as the MAGE FEUQ has no
feminist discourse, or even based on a reflection. When organizing a Mage
event, it is careful not to feminize the struggle slogans, speeches and
informative leaflets never concern women's demands. After all,
is not intended for women. In addition, committees are activists MAGE
often hatched by the same mentality: the fight overall, by and for the
majority. It abandons the parallel struggles (which converge yet at the same
sense) for the benefit of its stakeholders foregrounds, that is to say men. Because
it must be remembered that if women are under-represented in the Executive Committee,
they are equally in committee militants. In addition to having to
against a male-dominated, these women should get involved and advocate
confront the male solidarity, this rétiscence face all that is
order to feminize the struggle and the basic principles of equality among others:
alternating male / female in trade and feminizing interventions. MAGE is
careful not to have authority to prevent the domination of specific principles
our society such as e-warden not felt the example. Finally, MAGE is not
only one to be blamed for this blatant lack of feminism UQAC. He can not wait to have a
women's committee within these walls so that things change.
