It’s never too early

There is a large yet unrecognized gap of guidance regarding future, planned pregnancies -- and how to incorporate those pregnancies into the lives the University subconsciously encourages its students to lead. A sub-department of Career Services dedicated to advising students on how to include family planning into their career considerations would allow students to work within already-understood paradigms.

Ocasio-Cortez: The social media politician

Ocasio-Cortez’s social media style is the only viable future of political engagement. If we want more people who have felt forgotten by the political elite to participate, we need more politicians like Ocasio-Cortez.

The pink wave

As a result of the increase in women in 2018, a sizeable new political cohort has emerged, and these women will enter as canvassers, donors, and campaign volunteers. 

‘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 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.

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.

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.

"Hands up, don't shoot" appropriated?

So, why were the protestors in Los Angeles, who were predominantly white students and parents, using this slogan? Especially when the concepts implicit in this slogan, of police brutality and antipathy for young black lives, are not a pressing concern for the people I saw co-opting this cry?

“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.
