Ultimate Frisbee Teams Mount
“I Need Feminism Because…” Campaign

I Need Feminism BecauseThe women’s Ultimate Frisbee team at Boston University was disheartened after the results of the 2016 election were announced. Members of the team decided to mount a public awareness campaign entitled, “I Need Feminism Because . . .” Team members got a stack of Frisbees and wrote their reasons why need feminism on the back. They posed for photographs with their Frisbees and posted the photos on the team’s Facebook page.

The men’s Ultimate Frisbee team at Boston University joined their women counterparts and posted their comments and photographs as well, explaining why feminism is important to them. One man wrote: “I need feminism because I want to be respected as a male nurse practitioner.”

The effort has spread to other universities including Northeastern, Duke, and the University at Albany. Even the Ultimate Frisbee team at the University of Cape Town in South Africa has joined the effort.
