Alexa 2018 — Hello all! I am a Women’s Studies major and History & Political Science double minor here at the colleges. My major focuses in my studies are women’s roles throughout history and in politics and government, and I hope someday to teach High School History and apply feminism to what I teach!  In my spare time I enjoy watching documentaries, trashy TV shows, and seeing how quickly I can re-watch all of Grey’s Anatomy, I also love to spend time with my friends and the WS Rugby Team!

Kat 2017 — Hi there! I am a double major in Women’s Studies and Psychology interested in reproductive rights and feminist art. You can find me eating a bagel and drinking a huge cup of coffee nearly every morning in the library.

Natalie 2016 — howdy all of y’all! I’m a WMST major/intersectional feminist cat who wants to listen, learn, and engage with you! I enjoy finding Trump supporters at parties and letting them spew out all their arguments before gently prompting: “so do you care about women, gay folks, immigrants or you know… anyone who’s not a well-off white dude? Haha (:” The master’s tools may never dismantle the master’s house but stealing the master’s beer is an effective way to ruin his night 🍻😘 👑

Sara 2016 — Hi friends!!! I am a WMST and Public Policy double major who spends most of her time intermingling with feminist ideas and policy changes. I am always talking– whether about Gloria Steinem, my right to vote or even my choice over my body. I have an opinion and sure as hell love to share it!! I have a voice, do you?
