Hi, my name is Rachael and I am writing because I am going to be a Resident Assistant at San Francisco State University starting this fall for an all women's floor. The purpose of the floor is to get a group of women together who are interested in issues concerning women, to educate one another as well as the rest of the residential community and the local community outside of the residence halls. I am nervous because this will be the first year for a floor like this, and my first year as an R.A. I wanted to know if you could point me in the direction of some resources I could use to help organize the women I will be working with. I would appreciate any help you could offer. Thank You, Rachael

Thank you for your note to feminist.com--and I loved learning about your floor. I went to an all women's college, so every floor was an all women's floor with at least a minimal level of social consciousness. I think the nature of being on an all women's floor with some sort of organizing link will be invaluable. You might want to start by offering weekly discussion groups focussed around an issue of potential importance to college women--like eating disorders, women in film, sex, managing your money, activism in everyday life, etc...You also might want to initiate a book group. Because you are in school, people probably don't have much extra time for reading, so maybe instead of a book you could do an article from Ms. Magazine, Time, etc....You could even do a comparison between the two.
