TTC Millennial Voices: My Feminist Awakening

July 01, 2015 Rosie the Riveter

By Tongwa Aka

 

It's been five weeks, five weeks that have gone by with such rapidity that I cannot begin to comprehend. In five weeks I have matured as a person, a maturity that has come from being surrounded by successful women, who are making tremendous progress in a country where gender bias/inequality is still a predominant issue.

Prior to working here, I was aware of the issues that women face in today's society. Like a decent human being, I supported equality for all. I read articles and kept abreast of the women's movement. However, I lacked a passion for the subject. I looked on as an outsider, and I wasn't bothered enough because I felt that these issues do not affect me directly. Concerns like wage gaps between male and female employees or employment benefits for expecting mothers never irked me. Even though I agreed with most of the views of this movement, my attitude towards it was very passive.

A Call for Change

June 23, 2015

By Aima Corinaldi - To The Contrary Intern

June 17, 2015 marked the day of the tragic mass shooting that occurred at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, resulting in the death of nine innocent members of the church. What some people may not realize is that this took place just a day after the 193rd anniversary of a failed slave revolt. This revolt resulted in the church being burned to the ground as well as 35 of the members being executed. Last week, the church and its current members were once again the victims of a hate crime.

June 17, 2015 Left to Right: Vicki Shabo, Vice President of the National Partnership for Women and Familes; Michael Kaufman, Senior Fellow of Promundo; Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY); and Joseph T. Jones, Founder of the Center for Urban Families

By Zoe Spielvogel

“Fathers and mothers around the world are saying, ‘it’s about time.’” Promundo Senior Fellow Michael Kaufman delivered this call to action as he revealed the findings of the first State of the World’s Fathers Report. 

In advance of Father’s Day, Kaufman joined a group of lawmakers and advocates to call for policies that would ultimately change the lives of families not only in the United States, but around the world. The eye-opening report was launched in the heart of US policy-making: Capitol Hill. A news conference featured several speakers who have taken nothing shy of an active voice when it comes to parents’ rights, including Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), Rep. Ami Bera (D-CA), Vice President of the National Partnership for Women and Families Vicki Shabo, and Founder of the Center for Urban Families Joseph T. Jones, Jr.
