The Feminist Caucus at The University of Alabama held a bake sale Wednesday afternoon in the Ferguson Student Center. The sale featured a plethora of colorful cupcakes, cookies and brownies, with three members of the Feminist Caucus working the sale.

The sale served as a fundraiser for their upcoming event.

“We are hosting a conference in the spring called the Southeastern Feminist Meetup,” said Rachael Ledbetter, a senior political science major involved with the caucus. “We are raising money to bring speakers to campus.” 

Ledbetter said the group hoped to raise $100 for their cause.

A bake sale at Jordan High School in Utah gained national attention for charging men more than women at a bake sale last year. Ledbetter said the caucus would not benefit from that kind of sale.

“The issue with that is that white men would make a dollar and white women would make 75 cents,” she said. “Just comparing white women to white men’s pay is not intersectional.”
