Feminist Parenting & Hawks with Hawklets


The purpose of our Feminist Parenting group is to support student-, staff-, and faculty-parents as well as other interested individuals in exploring strategies for raising intersectional feminist children. We seek to empower parents and caregivers to raise children who challenge gender stereotypes and systems of oppression; support equity and social justice; show compassion for themselves and others; respect diversity and difference; and live authentically with vulnerability and empathy. At each session, participants will learn of at least one new skill or resource useful for nurturing intersectional feminist youth.

In this online community, we explore strategies for nurturing intersectional feminist children. This Facebook group is sponsored by the Emily Taylor Center for Women and Gender Equity at the University of Kansas and affiliated with our intersectional feminist parenting group, which meets several times per semester. The group is co-organized by student-parent Heddy Pierce and ETC program coordinator Megan Williams.

Student Parent Handbook

The Emily Taylor Center is proud to present a handbook for pregnant and parenting students at KU. This handbook includes on-campus resources, lactation room locations (with a campus map), scholarship information, Title IX protections, rights, and words of advice and encouragement. We created this handbook to provide a comprehensive resource for students who are also parents. Student parents have many unique responsibilities that they must balance, and it is important to provide a resource that will help student parents navigate both roles. We hope this resource answers many, if not all, of the questions student parents have as they learn to navigate as a student and as a parent at the University of Kansas.
