Women’s Issues

leave a comment »

Recently, I’ve found myself considering women’s rights issues more than usual.  In my colloquium on the constitution and society, I read articles examining transitional justice forums and whether local level courts would be more apt to address war crimes, such as rape.  In school,  I helped coordinate the women’s law group’s participation in SlutWalk, a global campaign against victim-blaming in sexual assault and rape cases, and organized a bake sale to raise money for the Advocacy Center, a local domestic violence nonprofit.  And just yesterday, a good girl friend emailed me an uplifting New York Times article about readers’ Mother’s Day donations which help to found the Kibera School for Girls in Kenya.  Today, I’m seeing Catherine MacKinnon speak at my school.  Heart women’s rights.
