“Why We Need Women’s Week”

Thank you to the Crimson staff for a great editorial on the importance of Harvard College Women’s Week in promoting conversations about gender and gender inequity on campus:

“Though Women’s Week 2012’s awareness- and discussion-based events represent a kind of activism that is markedly different from that of protesters of the 1960s and 1970s, it can rightfully be understood as a continuation of the feminist activism that shaped Harvard’s history decades ago. Women’s Week’s events span a wide range of relevant and challenging topics—such as gender in children’s literature, succeeding in the workplace, gender in hip-hop, and the concept of virginity—and in doing so explore expectations and representations of women in all areas of society: in popular culture, in the public sphere, and in the private sphere.”

Congratulations to all of those who helped make Women’s Week 2012 such a success!
