  • When Women Become Men at Wellesley

    New York Times ^ | October 15, 2014 | RUTH PADAWER
    Hundreds of young women streamed into Wellesley College on the last Monday of August, many of them trailed by parents lugging suitcases and bins filled with folded towels, decorative pillows and Costco-size jugs of laundry detergent. The banner by the campus entranceway welcoming the Class of 2018 waved in the breeze, as if beckoning the newcomers to discover all that awaited them. All around the campus stood buildings named after women: the Margaret Clapp library, the Betsy Wood Knapp media and technology center, dorms, labs, academic halls, even the parking garage. The message that anything is possible for women was...

    The New York Post ^ | 5-23-14 | Bob Fredericks
    It was reading, writing and religious brainwashing at this top Connecticut high school. Staffers at Avon High indoctrinated three once-happy girls into a death-obsessed religious cult that had them speaking in tongues and acting like zombies, a federal civil rights lawsuit filed by their parents charges. Three Spanish teachers and a guidance counselor “taught students to believe in superstition, magic and a non-scientific, anti-intellectual world view,” the suit says. “They lost their humor and their empathy. They began speaking in a bizarre new language. They became unable to think critically or independently. They became dependent on the school teachers and...

    Backdrop on the above (click to enlarge) from the Boston Globe, February 5: A realistic-looking statue of a man sleepwalking in his underwear near the center of Wellesley College has created a stir among the women on campus, especially as more than 100 students at the all-women’s college signed a petition asking administrators to remove it. The statue, called Sleepwalker, is part of an art exhibit featuring sculptor Tony Matelli…. “[T]his highly lifelike sculpture has, within just a few hours of its outdoor installation, become a source of apprehension, fear, and triggering thoughts regarding sexual assault for many members of...

    300 students have signed a petition to have the creepy, yet lifelike statue removed. In part, the petition reads; "This highly realistic sculpture has, within just a few hours of its outdoor installation, become a source of apprehension, fear, and triggering thoughts regarding sexual assault for many members of our campus community. While it may appear humorous, or thought-provoking to some, it has already become a source of undue stress for many Wellesley College students, the majority of whom live, study, and work in this space."

Dressed in a button-down shirt and khakis, the lanky 38-year-old teacher stands in the aisle of a school bus idling behind Wellesley Middle School. He holds up a hand to quell chatter and giggles from the 11- and 12-year-olds. “I want to be proud of your behavior. Make us proud in how you ask questions.” Katie Pyzowski, her hair pulled back in a headband, sits quietly in a window seat as the din of her classmates resumes. Just a...

    An online contest to find the “smartest, silliest, and sexiest” male freshmen at campuses across the country has left some Wellesley College students feeling misrepresented and caused the website to revamp its contest to address the concerns of the single-sex school. HerCampus.com, an online lifestyle magazine geared toward college-aged women, started “Mr. Campus Freshman 2013,” with the goal of crowning a male from over 20 colleges represented by the website. But to the dismay of many on campus, Wellesley College students were advised to nominate a male from outside the school, ignoring students at their school who are transgender.‘''We ran...

This being one of the few occasions where she can relate to her audience viscerally and intuitively, we're treated to relatively spontaneous remarks, perhaps the closest we'll get to an unscripted Hillary: Clinton began her 40-minute speech by mentioning the old rules for young women that she helped abolish at Wellesley, and of which many of today's undergraduates were unaware. Boys were allowed to visit dormitory rooms only on Sunday afternoons,...

Her visit, the ostensible purpose of which was to announce a new Web site aimed at younger voters, hillblazers.com, created palpable excitement on campus.

They were written by Mrs Clinton, the favourite to win the Democratic presidential nomination, between 1965 and 1969 when she was a student at Wellesley College, Massachusetts, and was keeping in touch with an old school friend called John Peavoy. The assured, fiercely disciplined politician had then "not yet reconciled myself to the fate of not being the star" at university and was unimpressed...

    Hillary D. Rodham's (Clinton) senior thesis at Wellesley college was about the radical leftist agitator, Saul D. Alinsky. In her (Rodham's) paper, she accepted Alinsky's view that the problem of the poor isn't so much a lack of money as a lack of power. She also accepted his view of federal anti-poverty programs as ineffective. Alinsky felt the War on Poverty was a “prize piece of political pornography.” Rodham wrote in reference to the War on Poverty, “A cycle of dependency has been created which ensnares its victims into resignation and apathy.” There you have it, what Republicans have been...
