Ukiah High School’s burgeoning Women’s Empowerment Club, founded in 2021 and over 30 members strong, continues to hold weekly meetings to address systems of oppression that prevent women’s rights to thrive as realities on their campus and in society. Members of The Women’s Empowerment Club research feminist topics to create informative presentations, which are then shared at the weekly meetings. Club members analyze data, reports, and articles on selected topics to create power-point presentations that serve to educate club members and spark discussions. The Club is also active in the community; the group organized a protest in front of Ukiah’s courthouse in protest of the overturn of Roe vs. Wade, and fundraises for Project Sanctuary and Planned Parenthood.
