“The taunts and comments that we are subjected to on a daily basis emphasize that women exist as an afterthought, even for the law, lawmakers and law enforcers. In a country where rape is prevalent, women are shamed for standing up and leaders use lines like, “boys will be boys”; Shakti Mills, the Delhi gangrape, and Badaun become dim, distant reminders. To not forget that you could have your choice and journey swerve to a complete stop and that you have no control. […] There is something fundamentally unnatural about a country where a woman exists in survival mode right from her childhood. Let us address this, talk about why India is at this point, debate about how to truly safeguard the freedom of women. Unshackle yourself from the mindset that necessitates apathy to survive.”

So I was at Simmons College yesterday to pick my sister up from orientation, and I found this beauty on one of the tables in a dining hall. Apparently it was an April Fools joke they pulled this year, and it makes me approve of this college all the more

We’re glad you approve ;)

We’ve been loving all our Orientation Leaders AND the great ladies of our class of 2018 who have been here this week. We can’t WAIT for fall!
