Food, Frisbee, Feminism Special: Part 2

This is the second in a four part series to celebrate the month of February and Food, Frisbee, Feminism, a second-year movement to bring more people in the ultimate community together over social gatherings to talk about feminism. We'll bring you three featured articles on a topic each week. Have some articles you want to share? Send them to upwindultimate@gmail.com and we'll collect them as a resource.

TRIGGER WARNING: This week's articles will focus on feminism as it relates to sexual assault and Upwind's goals to increase consent at parties. Take a look at the cross section of feminism and sexual violence.
