Making us women feel "safe and respected" one leader at a time.

Actual Quotes From 21st Century Politicians About Women

It's time to wake up and face the truth regarding the men and women currently working for our government, and realize their voice to help the people instead is verbally speaking against women on public platforms. Because we allow these politicans to speak their sexism freely, how can the future women of America feel comfortable to take stand for our views, be taken seriously, and not feel afraid to come out as a rape victim? Here are just a few of many current political workers who prove my point about the current sexism problem in our century. Yes, it's true that women today have more opportunities, and influence then ever, but there is still an unfair gap in our rights compared to men, and sadly it's about our bodies, and how we should use them. It's time for this to end

Republican Rep. Trent Franks

"Before... my friends on the left side of the aisle here tried to make rape and incest the subject- because, you know, the incidence of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low."

Washington Congressional Candidate John Koster

"But on the rape thing, it's like, how does putting more violence onto a woman's body and taking the life of an innocent child that's a consequence of this crime, how does that make it better?"

Idaho Senator Chuck Winder

"Doctors should make sure a lady who reports a rape isn't making it up in her scheming lady-mind."

Texas State Rep. Jodie Laubenberg

"In an emergency room they have what's called rape kits where a women can get cleaned out."

Arizona Rep. Terri Proud

"Personally, I'd like to make a law that mandates a woman to watch an abortion being performed prior to having a 'surgical procedure'. If it's not a life it shouldn't matter, if it doesn't harm a woman then she shouldn't care, and don't we want more transparency and education in the medical profession anyway?"

Lawrence Lockman

"If a woman has the right to an abortion, why shouldn't a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on a woman? At least the rapist's pursuit of sexual freedom doesn't (usually) result in anyone's death."

Jeb Bush

'"I'm not sure we need a half a billion dollars for women's health issues."

Rep. Missouri Todd Akin

"If it's legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

Texas Gubernatorial contender Clayton Williams

"As long as it's inevitable, you might as well lie back and enjoy it."

Montana District Judge G. Todd Baugh

"Statutory rape isn't rape when girls seem "older than her chronological age.""

Utah State Rep. Brian Green

"Having sex with an unconscious woman is fine as long as she's your wife."

Presidental Candidate Donald Trump

" I mean, we could say politically correct that look doesn't matter, but the look obviously matters. Like if you wouldn't have your job if you weren't beautiful."
"Women have one of the great acts of all time. the smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers."
"If Hillary Clinton can't satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
