    ThumbnailSusan B. Anthony once said, “No self respecting woman should wish or work for the success of a party that ignores her sex.” (1872 and 1964). These words are important to remember, especially in the upcoming 2012 elections that will determine the progress or rollback of women’s rights. When asked about pay equality at the second presidential [...]

    Apparently certain people in society feel obliged to feel sorry for rapists. The New York Times article by James C. Mckinley Jr. on March 9, reported on the gang-rape of an eleven-year old girl rocked the journalistic boat. Although journalists may take non-bias approaches, this journalist captured the communities responses of sympathizing with the assailants. [...]

    Imagine yourself after one night of unprotected sex. What would be your first reaction besides utter panic? You may be wondering where your birth control is or if she is even on the pill. Now, take the same situation and imagine that you did not have any birth control because you could not afford the [...]

       There have been numerous debates over the repeal of “Don’t ask, Don’t tell.” Leaders like McCain want to select who can sustain membership of our Armed forces based on one’s sexuality.

    Well, I can only speak for my own personal opinion in that I wouldn’t call them lies, but social constructions on what love is and how relationships are supposed to be. If you know your’e in love, then that is what you make of it. If it happens to fall in line with what the [...]

    First I’d like to say you’re welcome. I have felt that way for practically my whole life as well. And it sucks. But, I am glad to hear that you do value yourself. I know in high school it was hard for me, especially during prom when girls would be asked by the guys with [...]

    Here are some questions I believe we can all answer…Have you ever felt like a “loser” because you don’t have that “special” someone? Have you found yourself eating Ben and Jerrys on your couch, watching the romantic movies to remind you what you don’t have? Have you watched your phone countless times to see if he called?  It [...]
