At the MIT Open House on April 30, 2011, the Women’s and Gender Studies Program brought a whole new meaning to campus visibility for feminists:

The Women’s and Gender Studies Program set up a professional photobooth where several hundred people (among them MIT President Dr. Susan Hockfield), had their pictures taken as part of a 150th Anniversary project called This is What a Feminist Looks Like at MIT.

The full set of photos (here) — a compelling collage.

For law school student groups looking to raise awareness of feminist issues, MIT’s example might be exported to new student orientation or similar event in the early days of a new semester.

  1. i know it’s not the same exactly, but we did a similar thing at Osgoode Hall (York Uni, Toronto) see here http://ifls.osgoode.yorku.ca/2011/03/why-celebrate-iwd-we-have-ideas/
    very, very fun and simple.
