Members of women in Leadership are inviting students to take part in a discussion on the role of men in feminism.

The club will host Men and Feminism, a night dedicated to dialogue on the subject.

“My hope for this event is that we can deal with the word feminism,” said Fiona Rumohr, vice-president public relations for Women in Leadership.

The event will also feature a guest speaker from the WizeGuyz program, which educates young men on sexual health.
