Feb 2 2013


Duke University, Durham, NC

A new media activism program at Duke University was started this year with the aim of helping young womeen excel in blogging about gender issues.

The feminist-oriented program is called Write(H)ers and was created by Duke senior, Samantha Lachman and Women's Center Director Ada Gregory. The 23 women involved in the program will meet professional journalists at workshops centered around blogging and gender issues on campus and abroad.

Each member is required to contribute 3 blog posts every semester.

The latest posts include: Why Watching UFC Might Finally Be a Feminist Act; Cunts, Sluts, and Forced Femininity; and Is the glass ceiling becoming thinner?
