FEPS began during breakfast in the cafeteria at SUNY Oswego, during the 3rd Annual NEEPS conference. The company included Maryanne Fisher, Rose Chang, Sarah Strout, and Rose’s mother, Cris Sokol, and son, Enso Chang. Maryanne posed a name – Feminist Evolutionary Psychology Society, or more colloquially, FEPS. Those 4 words launched an exciting brainstorming session (by the adults anyway) about what the society could be. By lunch, word had spread throughout the conference, and the list of interested scholars grew – including people from the disciplines of Psychology, English, Anthropology, Public Health, and Ethology. The enthusiasm did not die down after the conference, and word has quickly spread to enthusiasts and skeptics alike!
