Ellie writes about how relevant Ding Ling’s analysis of gendered language is to our modern day disparity in degree results.
Ellen Pasternack writes about how important Jane Goodall’s work was in increasing our understanding of animal behaviour. Her work led to a revolution in scientific thought as to the humankind’s place in the animal kingdom.
Imogen discusses the media’s representation of Hillary Clinton as a wife rather than a politician. And how all female politicians are treated like this; devaluing their professional achievements in pursuit of sexist abuse.
Isabelle Waterfall tells the important story of Nina Simone, a prominent civil rights activist and singer. Her music was significant in providing a voice for black women who were excluded from sexist black power movements, and racist women’s liberation movements.
