Network recruits new voters
of a new organization will host a voter registration
drive Friday in the Student Center.
A new organization being formed on campus to help create
more diversity will give students a chance to register
to vote on campus.
Members of the Womens Network will co-sponsor
a voter registration drive from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday
in the Student Center Lounge with the College Republicans
and Young Democrats.
Holly Moore, a senior food management major, said students
will have the opportunity to register and get information
about candidates and important issues.
Its sometimes confusing to register if you
live out of state, Moore said. The drive
will hopefully clear up some of the confusion and allow
students to register with their home state.
The Womens Network is a new organization that
hopes to create a more diverse and accepting campus,
Moore said the Womens Network will help raise
awareness of the inequalities that women in todays
Moore, along with three other womens studies minors,
said they decided to form the organization because they
recognized the need for a womens support group
There are so many social and political issues
facing young women today, Moore said. We
wanted to start this group so that we could help equip
the women on this campus to be prepared for life outside
of the TCU bubble.
Co-founder Sarah Crook, a junior English major, said
they plan on having professional women in the community
come in and discuss their experiences and the difficulties
Its a great opportunity for TCU students
to come together and learn about what goes on in the
real world, Crook said.
Moore said about 30 women have expressed an interest
in joining. A permanent meeting time has not been set,
Instead of formal meetings, the organization will host
Girls Night Out events such as salsa dancing
or potluck dinners, and discussion of important issues,
Joanne Green, director of womens studies and the
Womens Network adviser, said it is important for
students to know that the organization is not exclusive
This organization will deal with issues of gender
and that includes both genders, Green said. Some
men feel a pressure to act a certain way. This will
help break down stereotypes.

Network should contact Moore.
