FedUpVT (or FedUpBurlington) formed response to the rising level of attacks against women, including but not limited to attacks on women’s right to choose whether to carry a pregnancy to term, attempts to redefine rape, attacks on health care access and social spending, and more. Since we are based in VT, we tend to concentrate on issues affecting women locally, but we believe that as long as women are oppressed anywhere in the world, no woman is truly free.

    Hi my name is Jordan Kilty and I’m the managing editor of the St. Michael’s College newspaper, The Defender. I am writing an article on the Burlington Slutwalk and was hoping to speak with someone from Fed Up VT for your perspective on the Slutwalk and a few quotes. This is a last minute article and my deadline is today (Sept. 25). I don’t know if this will reach you in time but if it does and you are willing to be interviewed, please email me.

    Thank you for your work. I was drugged and raped on campus at UVM in 2005. Although the emotional damage of the rape was incredibly difficult to deal with, it was the institutional denial, manipulation and bullying on the part of the administration of the University that led to my withdrawal from the school at the age of 19. The issue of sexual violence going unchecked and unaccounted for through these tactics is what is leading to the culture that is evidenced in the most recent fraternity demonstration of rape culture. It is comforting to know you are up there working to better this situation.
