Last year two enterprising Yale women, Della and Sabrina, started a blog as a Rossbourough Fellowship with the Yale Women's Center. Their blog was called Broad Recognition and their aim was to create a forum for addressing gender bias and discrimination at Yale. The blog was widely read, frequently reported on, and highly controversial. In other words, a huge success!
Now that Della and Sabrina have graduated, and moved away from our hallowed halls, we, Maggie Doherty, Basha Rubin, and Adda Birnir, are excited to take over the reins. Over the course of this year we will be providing a feminist perspective on things that happen at Yale and pertinent issues that arise outside of campus. We hope that Broad Recognition continues to serve as a forum for productive dialogue and important insights on our gendered lives.
Let the blogging commence!
