Introducing a new Hoochie project! “DFM” stands for “Does Feminism Matter?”. Of course you know our answer — we’re all friendly fierce fine feminists here, eh? If that’s surprising, you should have read the sign on the door — but another question that matters is, “Do other people in our community think feminism matters?” So we’re gathering some data.
Our staff writers are going to be prowling the streets around the BU campus, stopping passersby each day to put an all-important question to them: “Does Feminism Matter?” We’ll post their responses here, without editorialization, so as to help create an accurate portrayal of the state of feminist attitudes and awareness in our community.
Here to kick off the series is an undergrad we found sunning herself on the steps of the Tsai Center.
