My experience as a blog contributor for the Women’s Center has been nothing but positive. I began writing this semester not knowing what to expect, but as the semester continued I began learning more and more about women’s issues that I was not already aware of. I have always considered myself to be fairly well in touch with the feminist movement and its place in history but as I researched the current status of women I realized the movement as a whole has a long way to go in terms of equality.
I enjoyed writing as a blog contributor because it gave me a chance to explore a different, more personal style of writing while learning about issues that are relevant today. Looking back on the semester, I am proud of what I wrote for the Women’s Center as professional work I can use in the future, and as a personal investment for my own knowledge. I would recommend interning for the Women’s Center because it is an amazing experience and something that can be used professionally in the future.
