    By Dena Robinson, Colgate University Class of 2012 and Francesca Acocella, Wellesley College Class of 2013 Our generation helped elect our country’s first black president – no small feat. But we were reminded on July 6 at Campus Progress National Conference 2011 that that wasn’t enough. As two among the over 1000 attendees at the empowering and mobilizing [...]

    This a guest post by Danielle Jackson, Online Outreach Associate at the National Women’s Law Center: This Tuesday, May 31 marks the second anniversary of the murder of Dr. George Tiller, the abortion doctor who was gunned down in his church in Wichita, Kansas.

    I will never forget the day I found out Dr. Tiller had been assassinated. I was driving through Pennsylvania with my parents when I received a text message from a friend, “Oh my God, Dena, Dr. Tiller was assassinated.” My first reaction was to scream, causing worry amongst my parents and, when I told them [...]

    This is a guest post by Taylor Brannan, outreach intern at the National Women’s Law Center: Today, Tuesday, May 31, marks the two year anniversary of the day that Dr. George Tiller was senselessly murdered at a local church in Wichita, Kansas.

    This is a guest post by Francesca Acocella, outreach intern at the National Women’s Law Center: On the second anniversary of the murder of Dr. George Tiller , we must reflect on civility (or, indeed, the lack of it) in the fight for reproductive rights for women. Disagreement, debate, and discourse are all valuable. They can even be [...]

  • dena wrote a new blog post: Balancing Activism and Academics   3 years, 10 months ago · View

    Being a college activist is hard. Whether you are fighting for queer equality, gender and sex equality or inclusive sexual assault policies, it is very hard. I was moved to write this post after realizing that I oftentimes feel so busy that I don’t get to write as many blog posts as I’d like to [...]

  • dena commented on the blog post Pushing for Transgender Rights on a College Campus   3 years, 11 months ago · View

    Pomona seems to be making excellent progress… Colgate could stand to learn something from them. As far as the academic buildings are concerned, you may want to try getting a taskforce together and perhaps talking with the Office of Residential Life at Pomona. I’m guessing that they’d be willing to listen since y’all already have [...]

    My best friend in college is transitioning. He first came out as transgender to our close friends at the end of the spring semester of last year. He performed a piece in front of the incoming class of 2014 (about 750 people to be exact) about being a trans man on our campus. This led [...]

    A friend just passed this story along to me. Dominic Scaia, a transgender man who had his breasts removed in November as part of his gender reassignment surgery, uploaded photos of his chest post-operation to Facebook. What did Facebook do? Well, they disabled his account.  What this blatant act of discrimination says to me is that Facebook does [...]

    According to the Laotian police, Samantha Orabator’s pregnancy was a ploy to escape the death penalty. Apparently, because she’s a woman… it couldn’t have been rape right? No, wrong. 
    Any thoughts?
