“I’m on the women’s Ultimate Frisbee team. We practice three times a week and do tournaments around California. We play a lot of Frisbee, and there’s actually strategy and a way to play. It’s pretty competitive. We’re a pretty competitive team. We train pretty hard, but it’s a lot of fun. The women’s team is still building; we’re getting better each year.” —Marié Weverka, junior anthropology major

“We have ‘Feminist Friday’ every other Friday starting this week. It’s essentially an opportunity to engage with the campus and greater community on feminist-theme issues. This is our first installment, called Justice Jeopardy, and often times within the mainstream, feminism can be non-accessible to trans people and exclusive to white women, and not racial justice-oriented. We really wanted to combat that, that’s why we’re playing Justice Jeopardy.”—Desiree Stevens, senior sociology major
