Sundlee '16: The modern silent majority

Sundlee '16: Selling out to the patriarchy

Being a feminist is chic. After centuries, it seems we’re finally winning the culture war. Long gone are the days of feminism being seen as the domain of frumpy, grumpy spinsters. We’ve got Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and, of course, Emma Watson in our ranks. We have sex appeal. We have commercial appeal. But ...

Sundlee '16: A house divided

At the beginning of this summer, I found myself in a very peculiar situation. I was to be sharing a house with a band of men in Georgetown.

Sundlee '16: The forgotten people of Balochistan

Three months ago, a mass grave was discovered in Pakistan. More than 100 bodies were found in three different pits, decomposed beyond recognition. These casualties were not products of the war on terror or religious strife, as many might be quick to assume. Rather, they were victims of pure persecution. ...

On the morning of March 22, one million cubic yards of earth slumped off of a hillside in Snohomish County, Wash. The wall of mud has taken the lives of 30 people so far.

Sundlee '16: Kindness is key

Last winter, I learned that no fewer than four of my close friends had contemplated suicide during high school or their freshman years of college.
