Fempowerment is a space for undergraduate students to come discuss any and all topics at the intersection of womanhood and wellness. Womanhood in this context is defined as the state of anyone who identifies as a woman, and wellness is defined as the promotion of mental, emotional, physical, and relationship-oriented health. Inspired by the FemSex @ Berkeley movement
