Next week on December 13, Capital City High School gains a new club, the Female Empowerment Club. The club will be hosting two meetings on December 13th. The first will be before school from 7:30 to 8:20 and the second will be after school from 3:40 to 4:15, both in Room 100. Club members are not required to come to both meetings, they are just there to accommodate others’ schedules.
The club was started by three students, Madison Keep (11), Shea Stafford (10), and Manveeta Vuppala (10). They were inspired to create this club to create a safe space for women in this school. Keep specifically stated when asked about inspiration to start the club was, “Women at this school don’t feel safe especially with comments made by peers. I wanted to create an environment to build women up and help build confidence.”
One of the first activities the club plans to host for the school is a collection drive for feminine hygiene products. The club wishes to use them to implement free feminine hygiene products in all the women’s restrooms at CCHS. More information about said drive will be given at the December meetings.
