Please join us for our one-day Feminist Camp NOLA!
It is your front-row seat to feminist work, activism, and action beyond classroom theories.
Our camps are designed so that campers explore the landscape of feminist work, learn about themselves, and start envisioning what their feminist futures might look like. We introduce campers to fellow feminists who get sh*t done: by working for non-profits, volunteering, creating art, organizing, protesting, running businesses, and translating theory into action. With these connections and inspiration, Feminist Campers leave with a renewed sense of direction and the confidence to make the next move.
Feminist Camp believes in empowering feminists to visualize and pursue their goals. We do this by: 

Focusing our sessions on conversations, not top-down sessions where the "experts" are the only ones talking.

Getting you in front of leading researchers, activists, thinkers, and artists in the field and facilitating meaningful connections.

Offering post-session support in developing an activist or academic action plan to leverage your Camp experience in your home communities.

Encouraging each member of our globe-spanning alumni network to step up as feminist leaders by offering benefits such as scholarships to other conferences, organizing opportunities, job search assistance, and more.

Born and raised in Southern California, Brit Bennett graduated from Stanford University and later earned her MFA in fiction at the University of Michigan. Her debut novel The Mothers was a New York Times bestseller, and her second novel The Vanishing Half was an instant #1 New York Times bestseller. She is a National Book Foundation 5 Under 35 honoree and in 2021, she was chosen as one of Time’s Next 100 Influential People.

The Zale-Kimmerling Writer-in-Residence Program brings renowned woman-identified writers to the Tulane campus. Coordinated through the Newcomb Institute, the Zale-Kimmerling Writer-in-Residence program was established by Dana Zale Gerard, NC ‘85, and made possible by an annual gift from the M.B. and Edna Zale Foundation of Dallas, Texas. Since 2006, the program has been generously supported by Barnes & Noble College Booksellers. In 2010, the program became fully endowed through a gift from Martha McCarty Kimmerling, NC’63, and known as the Zale-Kimmerling Writer-in-Residence program.
