Faculty Statement in Support of Feminist Enquiry, Association, and Activism
 
We, the undersigned faculty at Queen’s University, believe in and strongly support feminist enquiry, association, and activism in all societies where people’s status is demeaned on the basis of gender. Feminism has a long and complex history. It, like other political philosophies, has many variants, traditions and streams. Feminists rarely speak with one voice, and they are certainly not only female. But what we have in common is a commitment to equality of all kinds and an abhorrence of violence, both individual and systemic. We see the marginalization of women as complex and intertwined with racialization, colonization, class inequalities, sexual orientation, and global location. Feminists agree that education is key to changing cultures of physical, emotional, and sexual violence and to maintaining hard won rights that must actively be protected. We are outraged at the recent attack on a female Queen's student, as we are at all acts of violence. We write to show our support for feminist students and feminist work at Queen's and for everyone who speaks out against violence, discrimination, and injustice. We are proud to have the chance to work with students who are committed to social justice and equality.
