Disclaimer: I will probably irritate someone reading this, but I need to be honest. I never considered myself a feminist, until being a part of ShoutOut!. Now I would say I am a feminist, but it’s not something I would shout from the mountain tops. And no, it’s not because I’m embarrassed or ashamed; it’s […]Read More My Semester as a Feminist
If you don’t live under a rock, you probably are aware that Super Bowl 50 happened last night. And if you aren’t into football, hopefully, you at least watched the halftime show (If not, before you do anything, check it out here). Coldplay, Beyonce, and Bruno Mars came out with a bang, making one of […]Read More Football and Activism: Why the Halftime Show Matters

In […]Read More Women Overrepresent the College Population, Yet Underrepresent the CEO Population. Why?
Marriage. As a 21-year-old college senior, that’s something that feels incredibly far away. But realistically, if I end up getting married (which is something that I want to do), it will probably be sometime in the next ten years, especially if I want to start having kids in my early thirties. Of course, many people my age […]Read More If you get married, will you take his last name? #AskWhy
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’m going to write a post about something I’ve never blogged about: Love and relationships. I am in a relationship, and I love talking about love, watching lovey-dovey movies, listening to love songs (especially Taylor Swift), but I didn’t think it was necessarily a feminist topic. However, most people deal with […]Read More Need relationship advice? Ask a married couple!
Did I read that correctly?? YEP. Today, the US Supreme Court decided to deny hearings for all marriage equality cases before it, meaning that Same-Sex marriage is now LEGAL in Virginia as well as Utah, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Indiana. Marriages can take place in these states immediately, bringing the number of states to legalize gay marriage up […]Read More QUICK HIT: Same-Sex Marriage Is LEGAL In VA (And 4 More States!)
Every so often I read an article so outrageous I’m left unsure as to whether it was meant to be a satire of some sort, or if the author is truly that out of touch with reality.Read More Choose One: Family or Career
