‘Woke’ men need to wake up

It seems that in discussions of problematic male behavior, there are many men on campus who assume that — because they’ve taken Gender and Sexuality courses or are “so happy” that the head of their team, group, eating club, or government is a girl — they can’t be part of the problem.


The war on women escalates

The implications of failing to fully re-authorize this bill extend past current and future victims of domestic violence — although, according to the CDC, this category encompasses a staggering one in three U.S. women. Violence against women acts in deeper ways, as it systematically denies women equal participation in society through fear and pseudo-protective measures that continue to push them into the private sphere. 


Out of (Birth) Control

We must face the reality that all women are fighting daily — not for a gun, not even for an abortion, but for a tiny, legal pill.


Hey, I’m talking here!

The men of Princeton need to be conscious of their habits of entitlement, taking it upon themselves to do better and stop interrupting the women in their classes. Clearly, the women at Princeton are qualified to contribute in precept. Stop getting in their way.

“Love Saves Lives”

The best way to reduce the number of abortions would be to resolve many of the factors driving women to choose that path in the first place.


Where are all the women?

Female teachers have a significant positive impacts on their female students, so much so that it can change the course of their academic futures. The dearth of female faculty at Princeton is preventing this guidance from occurring, reinforcing the pattern of male academic dominance.


The FBI is racist — here's why

The problem with the FBI is not related to electoral politics, so political action as generally conceived on campuses is not effective. The FBI remained racist under Obama and will probably continue to behave in the same manner after Trump. The Bureau has a long-term power structure that is resistant to outside interaction. 


I’m reclaiming my joy

Last semester, Princeton Students for Gender Equality (PSGE) and Princeton Students for Reproductive Justice (PSRJ) hosted the first Menstruation Celebration, a festive event in Frist Campus Center meant to both infuse joy into a discussion of a stigmatized topic and raise awareness about problems of access to menstrual products for those who need them. Additionally, sponsors of the event emphasized the acceptance of all uterus-owners and the disconnect between biological function and gender expression.
