The Throes of Patriarchy

The Throes of Patriarchy

What exactly does it mean to say that feminism has no obligations to men? First, feminism as a movement does not need to include men; and second, feminism as a project does not need to “save” men. While men may certainly choose to identify as feminists, and while abolishing the[Read More…]

CORREIA: The Need to Rename Feminism

CORREIA: The Need to Rename Feminism

As those who reject feminism distort the definition of the movement, so too do those at the other extreme who use feminism to advance their elitist, man-bashing agendas. At what point does a distorted definition become the true definition? In today’s Western culture, words become colloquialisms more quickly and easily[Read More…]

A Midterm Election Battle of the Sexes

As midterm elections creep closer, things are not looking good for the Democrats. The Washington Post Election Lab is showing a very high probability of the GOP not only retaining their majority in the House, but also taking back the Senate.

The Palin Prototype

The Palin Prototype

“I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm,” senatorial candidate Joni Ernst announces proudly as she advances toward the camera in one of her recent campaign ads. If that weren’t direct enough, the rest of the ad includes a grisly one-liner about cutting pork in Washington, as well as[Read More…]

Old and Stubborn Subliminal Marketing Standards

Old and Stubborn Subliminal Marketing Standards

A chorus of “sorry’s” rings out as two glossy-haired women scuttle out of a man’s path on a subway and a conference room. A mom apologetically hands off her toddler to her husband.

Stay-At-Home Shame

Stay-At-Home Shame

Donna Reed is dead. Her pearls and aprons haven’t graced America’s screens for decades. And what’s more, her character’s lifestyle is more or less dead, too.

Broadening the National Discussion of Elliot Rodger

Although Elliot Rodger’s “revenge against humanity” has been discussed for weeks now, a recent article in Time has kept the memory fresh in my mind. The first sentence of Kate Pickert’s “A Murderous Spree” sums up her two-column briefing on the UCSB shooting: “It appeared that all involved had done[Read More…]

Vague on Vogue

Vague on Vogue

For most people, Vogue magazine conjures up images of glossy, glamorous models in outlandish outfits slapped with tags like “couture” and “chic.” It does not typically bring up thoughts of Hillary Clinton, the stoic, intellectual, pant-suited, seeming-antithesis to the fashionable fluff of such a publication.

A Full Dress

“I am not an empty dress, I am not a rubber stamp and I am not a cheerleader. I am a strong Kentucky woman.” The rest of Alison Lundergan Grimes’ statement is drowned out by a swell of roaring admiration from the crowd. She delivers her victory speech with a[Read More…]

A Word for Women in Leadership

I spent last summer in India, running a nonprofit teaching program I started. I lived with my grandparents, who helped me with on-the-ground logistics.
