Hello Feministing World!

Hello, so very nice to meet you!

My name is Dena Robinson and I will be blogging for Feministing Campus this year! I am a junior at Colgate University and will be writing on behalf of the Sisters of the Round Table (SORT), a feminist-womanist, all-inclusive organization of which I am the Chairwoman. In addition to running this organization, I am the Co-Chairperson of the Black Student Union and am a student sexual harassment adviser at my University. For the entirety of my Colgate career thus far, I have been working with the administration to revamp our school’s sexual assault and harassment policies. This past summer I interned with the Feminist Majority Foundation and blogged for their Choices Campus blog (and continue to do so; check it out, its good stuff) and am also a blogger for Abortion Gang. You can also find me on Twitter (@DenaRobinson).

At Feministing Campus I will mainly be blogging about rabblerousing at Colgate and different ways to work with your administration to affect change for sexual assault victims and survivors on your campus. As a queer woman of colour, I’ll often write articles about issues facing queer persons of colour at Colgate and around the world, queer issues, etc etc. Yes, I will probably write on a wide arrange of things. Feel free to comment—I love reading comments a lot!

Thanks for reading this very long rant and I enjoy getting to converse with y’all.

Have a wonderful, awesome day wonderful feminists!

Peace and love,

Dena

In the wake of the 20th anniversary of the Starr investigation that publicly exposed Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky’s relationship, Monica Lewinsky has written a powerful and compelling essay for Vanity Fair on her relationship with former President Bill Clinton, discussing hauntingly its skewered power dynamics, and the trauma and isolation she experienced subsequently.

The growth of #MeToo as a powerful movement collecting women’s voices on all manners of trauma — from rape to sexual assault to the sorts of sexual traumas we are unwilling or unable to classify into legal categories — exists in sharp contrast to the media treatment of Lewinsky just twenty years ago. Lewinsky’s role in what was deemed a ‘scandal’ of Presidential proportions ...
