This is a collective blog site for Government at Smith College and Women's and Gender Studies at the Pennsylvania State University. We are a group of students and teacher from different academic fields and backgrounds who have spent the fall of 2016 and the fall of 2015 exploring critical questions about the meaning of gender in society. 

This site contains our own analytical analyses and critiques of current events with a focus on media's gendered coverage of various events as well as political institutions' actions in challenging or securing women's rights. 

We encourage you to explore all areas of this site. Thanks for visiting!
