What We've Learned From the Elliot Rodgers Murders
There is no one reason for the recent killing spree in Isla Vista. There are a myriad of reasons. Although I'm sure mental health played a part, plenty of mentally ill people don't kill other people. But what strikes me as unique to this particular crime, i...

Same sex couples still face a myriad of legal hurdles that often require them to hire attorneys and spend considerable money on financial planning.
Same-sex couples won a huge victory last year, but the legal waters are still murky.

Stop Trying to Follow Rape With a False ‘Happy Ending’
                       In some ways, we
should be thankful that rape, outside of a stranger jumping out from the
bushes, is depicted at all. Depictions of rapists as acquaintances, friends or
former significant others help people understand that rapists are...

Let's play the game: Is that really sexist?
Hillary Clinton's age: I would be the first person to say that age should be an issue when considering a president. It should be a part of the conversation. In that way, I don't think that bringing up age, in itself, for Clinton, is sexist. It is the way he...

If Feminists Failed Monica in 1998, Did New York Feminists Fail Lis in 2014?
In the past week, feminist writers
have looked back on Monica’s treatment by many feminists and liberal
intellectuals at the time and declared that everyone could have done better. But
are we doing better now? The feminism we see now has grown more diverse ...

Why Young Straight Women May Love Danny Castellano and Nick Miller
For two shows that have been

The Problem With The Media's Reporting of L'Wren Scott's Death
L’Wren Scott was 49 years-old when she died yesterday, but
from the headlines you read yesterday, you would have thought that the past
decade plus she spent with Mick Jagger were the only years that mattered. I was
surprised at the consistency with which so...

Journalist, feminist, Wearer of Many Hats (literally)
Introduction
During my time at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, I've covered everything from city politics, breastfeeding laws, education, the effectiveness (or ineffectiveness) of job training centers and the stock market. My interest lies in covering the financial world. I'd love to write more stories that translate opaque Wall Street terms to the average person and give them a sense of why company executives and traders do what they do.
Before coming to graduate school, I worked at a weekly, the Lowville Journal and Republican and contributed to The Watertown Daily Times in upstate New York. I was one of only two reporters assigned to cover Lewis County. During my time there I reported on everything from local government to arts and culture. I covered the aftermath of a fire on Main Street which destroyed two businesses and wrote about the effect of the recession on the rural poor in Northern New York. 
I also spent six months interning as a reporter for The Legislative Gazette covering the New York legislature. Throughout my six months at the Gazette I also covered the state budget, a scandal at a juvenile detention facility, and the announcement of then Lieutenant Governor Richard Ravitch’s fiscal plan. I wrote articles for the newspaper and web and took photos as part of coverage for the 2010 New York State Republican Party Convention in New York City.
Bragging rights
Getting my picture in The New York Times. I did not do anything besides get in the way of a photographer to get in there.
