A Goodbye to "The Good Place"

“The Good Place” was a major success for NBC, which follows four humans as they go through phases of the afterlife. This feminist, philosophical show explores topics touching and hilarious, and was a bright spot on Thursday nights. This is what the show meant to me.

However, this book, Sissy: A Coming of-Gender Story, has been transformational […]

Not Enough Women at the Table

The 19thAmendment to the Constitution of the United States allowed women the right to vote in 1920. It is 100 years later, and we are only now seeing a rise in women represented in politics. But sadly, we are still extremely underrepresented. For years, women have endured a concerning struggle to reach a concrete level of […]

Bisexuality: Stigmatized not Accepted
