What is Making Herstory?
Making Herstory is a space built with our high school students that focuses on discussing social issues affecting our community and lives. We engage in collective dialogue to discuss ways we can transform our communities individually and together.
YOURS is the voice we want to hear.
YOURS is the voice we believe in.
YOURS is the voice that is powerful.
Our Mission Statement
"Making Herstory is a created safe space for south OKC high school women and allies to learn about and discuss feminism, ethnic studies, and their own personal narratives as a form of social and political empowerment."
Who should apply to the Beginner Program?
The Beginner Program serves as an introduction to social issues affecting Oklahoma City. We ask members continuing onto the Spring Beginner semester to apply, as well as students without previous exposure to Making HerStory. Ages of students may vary–looking for high school aged youth.
Topics in this workshop can include (but are not limited to):
• Dissecting Music Videos through a Feminist Lens
• Our Personal Narratives through Creative Outlets:
Spoken Word, Tree of Life, etc.
• The rise of Ethnic Studies
• The Tulsa Greenwood Race Riots
• The school-to-prison pipeline
• Immigration reform
We ask for a firm commitment from all high school students in Making HerStory. Our space relies primarily on building from one discussion to the next. We believe our members will benefit most from regular attendance and participation.
In addition, we expect a commitment to active participation in discussions by listening, contributing, and being on time. We ask you to commit to 4 weeks in the Making Herstory space. If after those 4 weeks, you do not feel benefited by our programs then no worries - you won’t be further committed.
If selected, you will receive notification via email.
We are so looking forward to meeting you, hearing your thoughts, and growing with you through this process!
