The election of President Donald Trump has many members of the University community wondering whether levels of activism will increase, or whether normalization of Trump’s and others’ ideologies will result in never-before-seen levels of apathy, a Monday lecture emphasized. However, Head of Wilson College Eduardo Cadava said the relevance of the activism series stretches back to far beyond the most recent presidential election.

All too often, the forces of justice in America fail to disrupt the status quo, explained Kimberlé Crenshaw in a lecture on Thursday. The thick controversy surrounding affirmative action in college admissions and hiring, the lack of equal coverage of black women shot and killed by police, and 20th century suffragist arguments based on white supremacy are just a few examples that Crenshaw provided of how when you scratch the surface, arguments on both sides of the political spectrum fail to acknowledge America’s racist and patriarchal legacy.

As I read through the fall semester program calendar for the Women’s Center, one event in particular caught my attention. For the first time since I’ve been a student here, Princeton University is sponsoring a discussion on female masturbation. I’ve heard of other schools hosting such talks for women students, but it’s a huge deal for Princeton.
As I sat down in front of the television and prepared to watch the start of the Democratic National Convention with my family, I was worried. I never imagined that this election would evolve into such a disconcerting excuse for a race. Recent mishaps like the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz and conflict within the Democratic party meant that I was not a casual viewer. I needed to hear what party members had to say about our aspirations for the immediate and the distant future.

With Beyoncé’s “Run the World (Girls)” playing from the room’s speakers and accompanying my steps, I marched confidently into Richardson Auditorium two weeks ago. I was there to hear Laverne Cox, a woman who is the epitome of confidence, personally tell her powerful message: “trans is beautiful.”
Arriving to Princeton just one month ago, I never thought I would be wearing a pair of light pink, three-inch wedges. In high school, I would wear a t-shirt, jeans and Vans every day. I had dresses and sandals and dangly earrings, but they never left my closet. It would have felt weird to wear them at school where people were used to seeing me in such plain clothing. I had given up on trying to look cute by my junior year, mostly because I knew everyone at my school and didn’t care what they thought about me, but also because I didn’t have the confidence.
