What better way to bring women together than to create an event that celebrates their many different experiences?
That was the idea behind the Fallopian Fest, an afternoon event created by five Stephens College students, which was held Jan. 21 in the Kimball Ballroom of Lela Raney Wood Hall. The festival showcased local poets and musicians and advocates who also spoke at the event, sharing their personal struggles as women or gender-nonconforming persons. There was also a panel of speakers who responded to a guided Q&A session about a wide range of women’s issues.
All money raised by the event was donated to True North, a local women’s shelter.
Organizers of the event were founders Emme Van Roekel and Lauren Douglas, and coordinators Winona Wiley, Keyari Page and Madeline Campbell.
