Nothingness feminist MAGE-UQAC

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, something as small as it may be akin to feminism. Of course, the FEUQ has developed several publications, and by this point, but under the heading'' File'', among the Copyright and the Quebec Public Finance, no trace of women's demands. However, a student union, it is unacceptable to see abérant trust the realities of almost half of its members. Around this empty place some key elements that belie not 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) Mage-UQAC is composed of one woman and seven men. You may say that this is the only woman president, but the will of feminism is it not equal? Have greater power as a woman does not restored fairness and be surrounded by men does not promote fair representation of each. In addition, it seems important here to question the under-representation of women in Mage-UQAC. How to explain it? What to do to promote the involvement of women in 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, you can find the codes of ethics and bylaws Mage. Within these documents and press releases, we can rejoice at such cowardice to feminize texts. Quickly, we speak of "students" and never students. Are we invisible? Or a simple "e" is too difficult for them to wear? We allourdissons text, admit it! Just know that women exist and 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. Mage when organizing an event, he is careful to feminize the struggle slogans, speeches and informative leaflets never concern women's demands. After all, we do not address women. In addition, committees MAGE activists are often hatched by the same mentality: the fight overall, by and for the majority. It abandons the parallel struggles (though that converge in the same direction) for the benefit of its stakeholders foregrounds, that is to say men. Because it must be remembered that if women are under-represented on the Executive Committee, they are equally in committee militants. In addition to having to deal with a majority of men, women who are involved and this solidarity activists face male face rétiscence this all that is about to feminize the struggle and the basic principles of egalitarian among other alternating male / female in trade and feminizing interventions. MAGE is careful to acquire instance to avoid the principles of domination in our own society such as e-warden not felt the example. Finally, MAGE is not the 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.
