The Importance of Being a Feminist

Posted by Vianey Reyes on March 26, 2015 at 11:30pm 0 Comments

Being a feminism is the most important title that I could ever give myself. I seek to improve the lives of others via the use of equality. I actively believe that everyone, who is qualified, should get the chance to do what they want without feeling constricted by societal norms. 

Let’s start out by defining this term. Don’t…

If I were the first female president...

Posted by mariel on March 27, 2015 at 9:27am 0 Comments

What an intimidating question!

There are sooo many important ways to address this, but I will keep it brief and focus on issues that are particularly close to my heart. 

If I were first female president I would work hard to ensure that not only are women in the USA treated with respect and diginity but that our sisters in other countries are as well. 

Reality is, though discrimination and misogyny [a dislike of women] exist in this country we are also INCREDIBLY lucky.…

If I Was President....

Posted by Barbi Ann Barbee on March 27, 2015 at 6:18pm 0 Comments

Just becoming the first woman president of the United States is a huge milestone in itself. It is a milestone for women but all of society as well. It’s no secret that women still aren’t treated equally in the US, and it’s time for something to change.

As the first woman president I would put focus on eliminating gender bias at the workplace. Women began working in professional settings decades ago. But age old prejudices still stand in our way. Women sometimes get paid less than men…

Gissel: First Female President

Posted by Gissel Gonzalez on March 27, 2015 at 9:27pm 0 Comments

Being the first female president just sounds so crazy! I've never considered myself as a person who could become a president -- I can be pretty shy at times -- but being the first female president would be such an honor! 

Of course, I automatically want to say that I'd solve all the problems as president, but that's so hard to do, even within four years. There are always new problems coming up, so fixing every problem is near impossible. So to dial it down a bit, I'll…

A Whole New World (with a bit less control)

Posted by Elena Barrera-Waters on March 31, 2015 at 2:46pm 0 Comments

I’ve never been a fan of crowds. In fact, groups of people that look like they could swallow me whole are the scariest things (other than bees, maybe) that I’ve ever encountered. It’s not just the sheer amount of people, or how aggressive they can get after a long day of being outside, but the way that they’ve made me feel smaller than I’d ever want to be.

I like control. It’s a character trait, or flaw in a lot of the ways I see it. I like being able to organize and have listed how…

Blog-A-Thon: If I Was the First Female President

First of all, being the first female president would be a huge accomplishment in and of it self. Being the first woman of color president would be an even bigger achievement. There are many issues that I am very passionate about, and many things that need to be addressed, but as President I would choose a few. I would focus on gender equality, poverty, immigration reform and climate change.Gender equality, does not only focus on people who identify as female but also on males, and transgender…See More

What Feminism Means To Me

Feminism to me, is a belief system where you are an advocate for gender equality. Feminism in my life has been played out through me wanting to be seen as "worthy" as men are because I feel our society really devalues women and their voice. Being a feminist is wanting a better future, where your daughters and sons do not feel that they have to be forced into a role they are unhappy with just to meet society's expectations. Feminism to me is wanting to live in a world where you are seen as who…See More
