Sejal_Singh-5

Welcome Sejal to the Feministing Fam!

If you’ve been on the site lately, you’ve probably noticed a new face and a fabulously smart, snarky, and always on-point new voice.

So it’s with a whole lot of excitement that we are pleased to officially welcome to the Feministing fam — cue the drum roll — the one, the only, Sejal Singh.

Sejal’s a total badass. She spends her days fighting for the rights of LGBT folks and her nights fighting Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos (and Betsy’s bff squad of men’s rights trolls). She’s also worked on affordable housing and homelessness issues, and her thoughts on higher ed policy have been published all over the place. In 2015, she passed a law in New York. NBD.

By the way, she’s just 24.

Sejal’s also wicked smart, a total policy wonk, a soon-to-be law student, consistently the best dressed lady in the DMV, and a devoted friend. She also has a killer power pose, and was named one of D.C.’s Most Eligible Singles. (Really.)

As you can probably guess, Sejal’s a big proponent of young people speaking up and changing the world. As she told Coveteur last year:

The first thing is to remember that your voice is really valuable. I think it’s very easy for young people, but especially young people of color, young women, young queer people, or people who, like me, are all of those things, to feel that the world doesn’t value what they have to say. As a young woman of color or a young queer woman, we know what we need better than anybody else . . . [B]e confident that you are an expert on your own experience.

At Feministing, Sejal focuses on gender violence, healthcare and tax policy, workers’ rights, and more. Check her out on Twitter and please join all of us at Feministing in extending her the warmest of welcomes. Sejal, we’re beyond thrilled to have you!
