Radical C.U.N.T.S Mission Statement
Radical C.U.N.T.S. (College Undergraduates Not Tolerating Sexism) is an activist group on Columbia and Barnard’s campus dedicated to eradicating sexism and its manifold manifestations. We undertake this project with a decidedly intersectional approach. We practice our feminism as a response to interlocking systems of oppression, emphasizing the ever-present dialogue between social identities, including but not limited to race, class, gender expression, sexual orientation, ability, age, nationality, culture, and religion. We identify ourselves as radical activists insofar as we imagine and activate outside of that which is given, to construct that which can be. The relationship between critical discourse and meaningful action is central to our method. In equipping each other with adequate discursive tools, we are better prepared to challenge, combat and ultimately dismantle the matrices of oppression. We see the university space as a central node in our social landscape, and we begin here with the understanding that activism produces rippling effects. We aim to activate on a continuum: from campus to city to nation. We activate ourselves as embodiments of bold, unapologetic, determined sites of resistance and human experience.
We are a committee in the IRC (Intercultural Resource Center, under the umbrella of the Office of Multicultural Affairs) and as such, we are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment in which students from all social identities and backgrounds including race, ethnicity, socio-economic class, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, and religious affiliation can feel comfortable discussing important issues affecting their respective communities.
