Each week HCWC will spotlight a woman within the Harvard community or beyond whose work and actions we deem to be “crush worthy.” We encourage you to participate in our #WCW  via your various social media platforms by sharing the women we honor each week to bring light to their important work.

Who she is: Laurie Penny, columnist and author, Nieman Fellow and Berkman Fellow at Harvard

Why she’s our #WCW: Laurie Penny is the author of a variety of books, blog posts, and articles that engage with feminist themes, including Penny Red: Notes from a New Age of Dissent, Unspeakable Things: Sex, Lies and Revolution, and Meat Market: Female Flesh Under Capitalism. Penny also writes courageously and passionately for The New Statesman about why we need feminism, the challenges (or myth) of work-life balance as a working woman, and the importance of gender-neutral language. Her Twitter presence is spectacular, and her writing serves to challenge, motivate and inspire us to think critically about the world we live in.
