A Family That Sings Together Stays Together... Especially The First Family

July 07, 2015 The President and the First Lady join the Girl Scouts in singing campfire songs at the Let's Move! Outside Campout Tuesday evening

By Zoe Spielvogel

“So, are you a Democrat now?”

My brother Max asked me this seemingly profound question after I sent him a series of pictures from First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Girl Scout Campout held on the South Lawn of the White House Tuesday evening.

I’ve always considered myself politically independent, seldom buying into the “fiscally conservative, socially liberal” line fellow non-partisans often like to throw around. I often find that members of both political parties have incredibly coherent and logical arguments – except when they, you know, don’t – and I usually side with whoever makes a more valid point in any given debate.

That being said, the Let’s Move! Outside Campout featured the President and the First Lady in a natural setting that almost made me forget that I was in the heart of global political activity. That is until my brother sprung that thought-provoking question on me.

My Feminist Awakening

June 30, 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.
