– Lack of representation? – Women’s Study Journal Entry

Here it is, the first entry of my women’s studies journal.  This is quoting a handout that we had in class today that argued that women are not properly represented in parliament.  I humbly have to disagree with that statement because I think the gender issue is not something that is commonly seen in politics.

There ARE more men in politics, but women are just as welcome and taken just as seriously when they venture into the political ring.  This is my explanation.  Enjoy.

– A New Blog: Insight Into Gender Equality –

Feminism "Men Are Pigs!" by TypoCity @ Deviantart.com

So as most of you may already be aware, I am a journalism student at the College of the North Atlantic.  Well, here’s a little interesting tidbit for you.  As an elective here in my final semester I am taking a Women’s Studies course.  It actually has been pretty interesting thus far, so far I only had to find experts and pose questions to challenge one thing that was said in class.  It’s not a man-bashing class, which is a big relief and makes me feel like I am not getting myself into something that’ll end up with me in trouble.

I’m pretty sure my parents were afraid that this decision would lead to endless arguments and maybe a homicide of my instructor, but truth be told we get along great and I think she has been one of the most thought-provoking instructors I’ve had, (with the exception of Fred Campbell). 

Anyway, part of the course that I decided to participate in as an assignment is to keep a reflective journal.  After every class there needs to be a new entry where you reflect on something that came to you or was inspired by the class.  I thought it would work excellent for me since I already do this blog thing anyway. 

In the interest of keeping things separate and easily organized I have a different WordPress URL for the journal, but in the interest of still sharing my journalistic travels and insights with anyone looking to follow I will post the new entries here as they come.  So, here you go. Enjoy.  Click the image below or Here to view the journal,
