NEWS | Princeton Graduate Students Hold Feminist Demonstration for International Women’s Day

Beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 8, graduate students from multiple academic departments interrupted approximately eight classes on the third floor of East Pyne Hall to protest for International Women’s Day, which is March 8. “It was seen as an interruption of the day-to-day comfortability that Princeton runs on,” said Verónica Carchedi, a graduate student in the Spanish and Portuguese department. The plan was to occupy East Pyne. After the protesters entered the classroom, they read their reasons for striking from their “manifesto.” They also encouraged students to walk out and join them. Only one unnamed professor knew of their plans and walked out with the students. Video by Michelle Wang Edited by Sarah W. Hirschfield
