From Furious to Fearless: Faculty Action and Feminist Praxis in Response to Rape Culture on College Campuses

Family Relations / Family Relations Interdisciplinary Journal of Applied Family Studies

Published online on


In this article, we (four faculty members) draw on a specific rape‐promoting incident on our campus as a case study for feminist faculty responses to civil rights issues on college campuses. We critically examine the incident and share our multipronged response as faculty members. In so doing, we highlight interdisciplinary activism, the importance of strong visual presence of feminist faculty activism on campus, as well as our challenges and dilemmas. As a call to arms, we hope this article inspires other faculty to recognize their power and to take incisive action on their respective campuses.
