What is Making Herstory?
"Making HERstory is a safe space for southside OKC high school students to learn about and discuss feminism, ethnic studies, and how their rich histories & personal narratives can be used as a form of empowerment to becoming socially and politically conscious beings of society."
In short, Making Herstory is a space built by our high school students focusing around social issues affecting our community. We engage in community dialogue to discuss ways to transform our communities - shaped by YOU. The Beginner’s Program will be, in short, an “Introduction to Social Issues Affecting OKC.” Topics in our Beginner’s Workshop can included, but are not limited to: dissecting music videos through a feminist lens, our personal narratives through spoken word, the rise of Ethnic Studies, The Tulsa Greenwood Race Riots, the school-to-prison pipeline, immigration reform, etc.
Who should apply to the Beginner’s Program?
We ask high school students who do not have previous exposure to Making Herstory to apply to the Beginner’s Program. Students can range anywhere from 13-17. We ask to commit to 4 weeks in the Making Herstory space and if you feel the program is not beneficial for you, you are not committed to being a member in Making Herstory.
We expect a firm commitment from all high school students in Making Herstory, whether old or new.
