Teen Feminists Really Do Care About the Budget

By Talia Weisberg

I had the amazing opportunity to participate in a NOW webinar moderated by Terry O’Neill, President of NOW, “The Budget Deal is a Feminist Issue.” The webinar discussed how Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) 2012 budget deal would cut several social services. Programs on the chopping block include Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Planned Parenthood and other family planning clinics, Pell grants, job training, Head Start, childcare programs, and WIC nutrition programs. Women are overrepresented in each of these program’s recipient pools.

Explorations on Women (Not) Running for Office – Part 1

By Rylee Sommers-Flanagan

Last fall, I decided to write a thesis about women running for state legislative office. This choice—to research women in domestic politics rather than the concentrations of my International Studies major (Latin America and Political Economy)—meant taking on a subject about which I had mostly intuitive and first-hand knowledge – and very little academic expertise.

Although I’m a longtime feminist, I have never taken a women’s studies course. Usually, I’ve defended feminism loudly, flying by the seat of my bloomers, and wielding loose and unofficial lingo.

She writes that in order “for UN Women to be effective, it needs to incorporate a feminist and women’s human rights lens while working in the bureaucratic confines of the United Nations.” Check out her blog post about UN Women here!

Getting to where you want to be in (non)profit

Navigating a career through the nonprofit sector may not be as easy as most people imagine. Once you decide to forgo the monetary bottom line to work for a specific cause or organization, you would think that doors would immediately open for you, and opportunities allowing you to work on behalf of the ‘greater good’ would be plentiful. Wrong. The nonprofit sector is just as competitive as the for-profit sector, with many individuals transitioning between for-profit and nonprofit work.

What are some of the pathways through and into the nonprofit sector and how can they be successfully navigated?
